Philadelphia Eagles (2-4-1) vs Dallas Cowboys (2-5)
Sunday Night Football will host the most popular match in its history as the Dallas Cowboys will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles on Prime Time Sunday Night. It will be the 15th Sunday Night meeting between the clubs. The match up however is far from what it was on paper before the season started. Both teams are dealing with injuries all over the field with Dallas dealing with the biggest injury after losing Dak Prescott for the season with a fracture and dislocated ankle. The Cowboys will also be without Andy Dalton who is still in the league’s concussion protocol after an extremely dirty hit by Washington’s Jon Bostic last week. The Eagles are coming off their first division win and getting healthier as rookie WR Jalen Raegor will return to the lineup Sunday Night and give Wentz another speedy threat in the receiving corps just as he is finding rhyme with his other speedy rookie John Hightower. If Wentz can get the passing game, the Eagles should have no problem putting up points against the porous Dallas defense. Even if Eagles RB Miles Sanders can’t go, the Eagles should still be able to move the ball on the ground with Boston Scott and Corey Clement as the Cowboys have the last ranked run defense in the league giving up 178 yards per game on the ground. For Cowboys they will see what they have in 3rd string QB Ben DiNucci. Schwartz will most likely look to pressure the young QB and rattle him into making mistakes. However, if DiNucci can stand in there and avoid the pressure he still has a number of dangerous targets who have the ability to gash the Eagles defense which has been weak this season. The Eagles are heavily favored, but this is an NFCE matchup on a national stage, so we can most likely expect a sloppy game with turnovers that ends closer than it should. Go Birds!

Eagles 17 - Cowboys 9
This was the game Wentz needed to win, his spirit growing after the Eagles rallied on the final drive in two straight weeks to beat the Giants and Redskins and thrust themselves back into the playoff picture. He rallied the Eagles with a pep talk in the tunnel before they hit the field for perhaps the biggest game of the 26-year-old QB's career. Perhaps fueled by the emotional edict, Wentz came out connecting on almost every pass, and a maligned wide receiver group that suffered a season-long case of the drops suddenly made plays. The Eagles took a 17-3 lead when Wentz hit former college quarterback Greg Ward for 24 yards and Miles Sanders scored on a 1-yard run on the final play of the third quarter for a 17-3 lead. Dak Prescott and the Cowboys fought back and Dak had the Cowboys in position to tie the game when Sidney Jones broke up Dak’s 4th down pass to Michael Gallup and Jerry Jones exited the box with 1:15 on the clock as the Eagles prevented Dallas from clinching the division with the win.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles faced off against the division rival Giants who were coming off their first win of the season and were looking for a 2nd for first year coach Joe Judge. The Eagles have moved to 2-4-1 on the season after rallying to defeat the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football, 22-21. After New York gave its best punch of the night -- a 97-yard touchdown drive headlined by Daniel Jones -- to go up 21-10 with just over six minutes to play, Philadelphia scored 12 unanswered points to earn the win. Carson Wentz led a 71-yard touchdown drive to give the Eagles the lead with just 40 seconds to play after connecting with running back Boston Scott on an 18-yard reception. Along with the comeback, he finished his night with 359 yards passing, two touchdowns and one interception while completing passes to eight different Eagles receivers. He also ran for 15 yards and a touchdown. As for the Giants, they mustered just 325 yards of offense and struggle to protect Daniel Jones throughout the contest
Cowboys - The situation went from bad to worse for the Cowboys, who had no answers for Washington's defense. After a goal-line stand on Washington's opening drive, a strip sack by Landon Collins on Andy Dalton led to an early Washington safety. Washington then marched down the field, extending their lead to 9-0 on a 12-yard touchdown run by Antonio Gibson. The Cowboys responded with their only points of the afternoon on a Greg Zuerlein field goal. However, Washington would score two more touchdowns in the second quarter to put the game out of reach for Dallas. With this loss, Dallas dropped to 2-5 on the season. Quarterback Andy Dalton would leave the game in the third quarter following a late hit by Washington linebacker Jon Bostic, who was subsequently ejected. Rookie quarterback Ben DiNucci would finish the game in place of Dalton, who was evaluated for a concussion.

Stats to Know
Gingers Under Pressure
Everybody knows there are some fantastical magical forces at play when it comes to redheads. They are a curious bunch. This week, we were almost set to witness the Battle of the Gingers in a matchup of piss-poor teams. Surely, the two were going to be under immense pressure to assert himself as the Supreme Ginger...and thus, we will be discussing the two under pressure, even though Andy is surely going to miss this coming game after a dirty hit to the head against the WFT. In 2020, a season demolishing both Dallas's and Philadelphia's Offensive Lines, not a single other NFL QB has been under pressure as much as Mr. Wentz (118 pressure dropbacks). His pressured dropback % is at least slightly better (36.9%), good for 9th-highest. He's also experienced the 6th-highest sack rate (23.7% of pressured dropbacks resulted in sacks) and the 7th-lowest Completion % when pressured (40.0%), 12th-lowest NFL Rating when pressured (51.0%), and 9th-lowest Adjusted Completion % (59.7%). Meanwhile, Sir Dalton in limited snaps thus far has done something spectacular - he has a 100.00% Adjusted Completion % when under pressure (8 completions on 17 attempts and 72 pressure dropbacks), which PFF defines as the % of aimed passes thrown on target (completions + drops / aimed). 8 completions for 58 yards and 1 TD, spectacular! While all 4 NFCE teams' Offensive Lines feature in the top-10 league wide for most pressures allowed, at least Dallas's per-snap Pass Block Efficiency rating is borderline top third, while the Eagles are 2nd-worst in both metrics. And here enters QB Ben DiNucci. Good luck. The question of Ginger Supremacy will have to wait for another day.
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Defensive Line vs what is left of the Cowboys Offensive line
This has been one of the premier matchups in football over the last few seasons, however it is a shell of what it once was due to injuries. The last few years the Cowboys had one of the best offensive lines in football, but they lost one of their best players in the offseason when Travis Fredrick retired for health reasons after missing 2018 with Guillain-Barré syndrome and returning to play last year. His replacement Joe Looney is currently on the IR and could return this week, though a more likely return date for him is week 9. The Cowboys are also missing starting RT La’el Collins who started the season on the IR for his hip, but later needed season ending surgery and All-Pro Tyron Smith recently underwent season ending neck surgery. Smith’s replacement Brandon Knight recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and landed on the IR. The Eagles DL which has been one of the strengths of the team this season should feast. Brandon Graham, who is tied for 3rd in the league with 6 sacks, is currently slated to go up against an undrafted rookie and Fletcher Cox is slated to go up against a rookie 4th round pick. This is one of the best DLs in the league vs one of the worst OLs. The Eagles DL need to take advantage of this matchup and pressure rookie QB Ben DiNucci into making mistakes.
Darius Slay vs Amari Cooper
These games are the reason the Eagles went out and acquired Slay this offseason. In four games since Amari Cooper has arrived in Dallas he has torched the Eagles secondary with 25 catches for 422 yards and 5 TDs. According to Mike Clay, Slay and Cooper have faced off twice before while Slay was in Detriot, first in 2015 where Slay covered Cooper on 20 of 27 routes limiting Cooper to 0 catches on 3 targets in the game. Slay faced Cooper against last season where he shadowed Cooper on 26 of his 30 routes limiting him to 3 catches on 8 targets for 38 yards. Both players are having great seasons as Cooper is on pace for 1300 yards, though most of those were with Dak Prescott in the lineup and Slay has been as advertised shutdown opposing number 1s on a weekly basis. If Slay can shut down Cooper it will limit DiNucci’s to Gallup and Lamb who are both also extremely explosive, but taking away one of those weapons for the rookie QB will be huge and could force him into mistakes on plays where Cooper is the first read.
Eagles Rushing Attack vs the Dallas “run defense”
Unfortunately for the Eagles, it looks like Miles Sanders will miss his second straight week with a sprained MCL, which I am sure he is bummed about because he could have had a huge day vs a run defense ranked dead last giving up 178.3 yards a game. Last week the Redskins had more rushing yards in the first half than they have all season vs Dallas and Redskins RB Antonio Gibson had a career day. With Sanders out the Eagles will rely on RBs Boston Scott and Corey Clement who have not had the same success as Sanders on the ground this season. Clement has not been the same since an injury in 2018 which caused him to miss most the season and the 5’8 Scott is more of a change of pace back, but both have speed and can catch the ball out of the backfield. If the Eagles get the run game going, I don’t see Dallas being able to stop this offense as the running game will set up play-action-pass and RPOs which have caused the Dallas secondary to bite this season and allow for big plays. This could be especially dangerous with the return of Jalen Raegor who can fly. Raegor who is always dangerous with the ball in his hands may see a couple of runs himself on a jet sweep or a toss play.

Training

Well, let me start by getting this out of the way: this year has been weird, unusual, and at times, stressful. Especially with the COVID-19 pandemic. After a spring training cycle that ended with me setting new PRs in the 10 mile and half marathon distances (via solo time trials), I started my marathon training cycle in June, with the hope that the major fall marathons (Chicago and NYC) were going to be held. Of course, they cancelled their events weeks later (and within weeks of each other) because the COVID situation was still left uncontrolled, leaving me without any goal race to aim for. With the uncertainty still lingering in the air, I opted to continue my training regimen, and start looking around for smaller races nearby later. Specifically, races that were small enough where they could get the necessary approvals to be held and were not too high profile where it would attract unnecessary attention.
My training consisted of mostly easy/aerobic running, some speed and hill workouts thrown in, along with the regularly scheduled long runs. But because I was training in the Northeast during the summer, it was brutally hot and humid, and training was miserable at times. Using a modified Pfitz 18/70 plan (basically without the hard workouts that might have overcooked me), I began at 50-55 miles per week, and eventually peaked at 70 miles per week.
Over the late summer, I started using marathon aggregation websites to look around for small races nearby, or within reasonable traveling distance, that were not cancelled at the time and still had space to accommodate additional participants. Some early leads fizzled out as the organizers opted to cancel their races and/or go virtual due to the uncertain COVID situation. Another race I was looking at decided to restrict participants to those who only resided in New England states, per a state order. Eventually, it came down to me seriously considering two races – Ocean State Rhode Races (OSRR) and the Harrisburg Marathon – and began to keep a very close eye on the developments from the organizers of those races. I noticed that the Ocean State Rhode Races organizers had a free waitlist enabled, the race was in late October (coinciding with the TCS NYC Virtual Marathon), and COVID cases wasn’t expected to spike to concerning levels at that time; with that in mind, I put my name into the waitlist.
About four weeks out, OSRR organizers reported that they got state-level approval for their event (a huge development), and they were working on getting town-level approval for all the towns that were along the course. One by one, town-level approvals started coming through, and the event appeared to be on track to get the full green light by the following week (three weeks out). With that promising positive trend, I decided to schedule my final 20 mile long run on that same weekend so that I could start my three week taper when registration opened up the following week. Sure enough, once the final town level approval was obtained the following week, they began to start pulling people from the waitlists. I immediately jumped on registration once I was pulled off the waitlist and signed up without any further delay. What seemed like a distant dream a few months ago became reality; I now had an actual, in-person marathon to focus on. It was time to prepare and bring my game day face to the race.

Pre-Race

Traveled over to Rhode Island via train and car early on Saturday morning, arriving at Narragansett later in the morning. After dropping off my overnight bags at the hotel, I walked around the beach area for a while, then stopped by the bib pickup area at the beach to pick up my bib. After eating lunch and checking into my hotel room, I did an easy shakeout jog along the first few miles of the marathon route to loosen my legs and get a feel of the first few miles of the course. Spent the rest of the afternoon chilling, sparing my legs from walking around too much.
I went to a nearby restaurant in the evening for the customary carb-heavy pre-marathon dinner. After dinner, I went back to my hotel room, where I went and did my usual pre-race preparation and routine. Laid out my singlet, shorts, arm warmers, my new pair of Next%, socks, gels and gloves, and pinned the bib onto my singlet. Took a warm Epsom salt bath to loosen my muscles and calm my nerves. I remembered seeing u/dozaster mentioned in artc that he drank a full serving of Maurten 320 the night before the race and it helped him greatly. I was like heck, this was worth a try; I wasn’t planning to carry a bottle during the race, yet I wanted to make sure I was sufficiently fueled up for at least the first half of the race, even I have to find myself storing it in my body like a bear preparing for hibernation. So I found myself drinking a serving of Maurten 320 while watching the World Series on TV before heading to bed. (Side note: And I found out the morning after the Dodgers choked really hard down the stretch. Like c’mon? Really? But again, that doesn’t surprise me). Got a good 7 hour sleep that night, and felt very well rested that night.
Woke up at 5:30 AM and started to get myself ready for the race. Had a quick breakfast consisting of two granola bars and some water to go along with it. I checked the temperatures for that morning, and while it was cold (temperatures were in the high 40s at the start), I realized this was perfect running temperatures and that I was going to be in perfect place once I was warmed up. Thus, no need for throwaway clothes. Plus, the start line was about half a mile from the hotel itself, and it was an easy 10 minute jog over. Since the race asked us to show up about 10-15 minutes before our scheduled start time, I wasn’t going to be sitting around in the cold for long prior to starting the race. Once I got dressed, I headed over to the hotel lobby where I got myself a bit of coffee to wake myself up and to stay warm for the time being. About 20 minutes before the race started, I took a gel, washed it down with water, then headed out to make the 10 minute jog over to the start line.
Once I reached the start area, I saw that other marathoners were converging on the area at the same time, and I noticed that the announcer was starting to ask participants to line up at the start corral. After a few quick strides in the parking lot, I went over to the starting corral and positioned myself up front. I quickly greeted a few runners near me and we started asking each other what our race goals were. It was immediately clear to me that everyone wanted to respectfully run their own races and not want to go out too fast and spend unnecessary effort jockeying for positions up front at the beginning. I also quickly realized there was a much deeper field than usual that showed up this year; there were quite a few sub-2:40 men, with a good number of sub-2:55 men in the mix as well. This was not surprising to me in the first place; with all the high-profile races were cancelled due to the pandemic, many of these displaced runners needed to find a race satisfy their racing itch, just like me, and it was almost a guarantee that a few of these fast runners were going to show up to any legitimate race that is able to be held in a COVID environment once they hear about it. With the realization that I was facing a very competitive field and that an age group placement was out of reach (unless something catastrophic were to happen), I decided to focus on running my own race, race smart, and focus on my own goal: running a 3:10 marathon.
After the usual pre-race announcements and the singing of the National Anthem, it was time for us to start the race. With the “on your mark, get set….” from the race announcer, we were off and running down the road in no time to kick off the race.

Race

Mile 1 to 7

I started off the first mile a bit too hot, going along with the faster runners up front. I quickly realized this was a bad idea and I certainly did not want to end my race early. So, I consciously backed off and let other faster runners go ahead of me, while I worked on slowing my pace down to my goal pace of 7:15 per mile.
My immediate concern in the beginning was that my HR was spiking to levels that would be unsustainable over the long run. Because of that, I focused on making sure I was being relaxed as much as possible while staying close to goal pace as much as possible in efforts to keep my heart rate down. There were a good number of rolling hills present during the first seven miles, and so I made sure to maintain consistent effort while going up and down the hills. I was in visual contact with a small group of runners – a few males and a few fast females – and so I tried to make sure I didn’t fall too behind from that group. Took some water at mile 4, and decided to hold off taking a gel until the mile 8 aid station, as I felt good nutrition-wise at that time.
Although, I have to say that I enjoyed the views while going through the Bonnet Shores neighborhood, and that was definitely the highlight for me for this portion of the race.
Hit the first 7 miles with 7:02, 7:16, 7:35, 7:04, 7:17, 7:15, and 7:20 mile splits.

Mile 7.1 to 13.1

After going through the Bonnett Shores neighborhood, I continued north on Boston Neck Road. After we passed the half marathon split off point, we started to run past the early bird marathoners whom started an hour earlier than we did, and we continued to encounter groups of these early bird marathoners throughout this stretch. There was a slight uphill climb between miles 9.4 and 10.4, but it did not bother me too much and I was able to navigate it without any issues.
The stretch between miles 10 and the half marathon point was incredibly beautiful. The roads here were lined with trees on both ends, and you could see that there was some fall foliage left on these trees (peak fall foliage occurred a week before). It was quite a beautiful sight to see.
By this time, my heart rate had dropped and stabilized to levels where I could maintain my current pace without completely bonking out later down the stretch. Took a gel with water at the mile 8 aid station; at that point, I burned through a good portion of my glycogen stores and felt this was a good time to start taking some additional nutrition. By the time I approached the halfway point, the lead male runners started coming through in the opposite direction, making their way south to the start/finish area.
Mile 8 through 13 splits were as follows: 7:28, 7:01, 7:16, 6:59, 7:17, 7:13. Hit the halfway point in 1:35:22. So far, so good.

Mile 13.1 to Mile 20

The halfway point between mile 13 and 16 consisted of an out-and-back loop through a residential neighborhood. Again, it was very quiet for the most part, aside from a couple of cheer groups that popped up along the way. Took a quick look at my watch and while the predicted time on the Race Screen app was still fluctuating all over the place, there was one metric that remained constant: the average mile per pace. And it was consistently showing 7:15 mile per pace. This was a good sign that I was on the right track to meet my goal finishing time; I focused on maintaining my current pace with consistent efforts. There was a small group of guys I was running with between mile 8 and 16, but by mile 16 I had completely dropped them as well. Took some water at the aid station after mile 14 and took some additional water plus a gel at the aid station right after mile 16, and braced myself for the uphill climb between mile 17 and 19. By this time, the rest of the marathoners were making their way northward, and I found myself blasting past them in the opposite direction.
Mile 17 and 19 was arguably the toughest part of the course, with rolling hills between miles 17 and 18, and a significant uphill climb of 160 feet between miles 18 and 19. While I navigated miles 17 and 18 without any issues (though at a slightly slower pace), miles 18 and 19 were somewhat difficult. While I slowed my pace by a minute per mile, it was a never-ending grind and I had to put much more effort into this segment compared to the effort that I had put in running the first 18 miles of the race. My lungs and legs felt like they were burning up, and I wanted this to end.
Once I crested the hill at mile 19, I made a quick porta potty stop at the nearby aid station, followed by a quick sip of water. After a quick breather, I resumed running and was back on my way.
Mile splits between miles 14 and 20 were as follows: 7:08, 7:11, 7:07:, 7:30, 7:27, 7:53, 7:10

Mile 20 to 26

There was this female runner that was I was running with since mile 8; while she was ahead of me most of the time (but within visual sight), I finally caught up to her by around mile 20. Once I passed mile 20, I had a big decision to make; do I stay on my current pace, or do I pick it up and run fast during the last 10K? I quickly checked in with myself to see if I was OK with picking things up a notch, and I realized that I was still in good shape (no fatigue), didn’t show any signs of bonking, and still had enough left in the tank for a fast finish. My watch still showed that I was on 7:15/mi pace, and my dream of a 3:10 finish was very much alive. With that, I did not want to lose this opportunity; it was go time for me. I picked up the pace, dropped the female runner, and began grinding out the last 10K on my own, at a pace slightly faster than my goal marathon time. I took full advantage of the elevation drops between miles 20 and 22 to throw down mile splits of 6:53 and 6:45, respectively, and put in more of a gap between me and other runners who were right behind me. This put me in no man’s land for at least a mile or so once more.
Shortly before mile 22, I made a right turn and merged onto the same route that the half marathoners were running on; this delighted me because now I was not completely alone and would have company for the last 4 miles of the race. With that, I continued with my fast pace, made sure I was 6 feet apart from the half marathoners, and blazed past them like a hot knife through butter. Some of them even cheered me on as I ran past them. Not going to lie, I felt like a rock star at that time, even though I felt bad for running past them and leaving them in the dust like that. But I had a goal to meet, I was not going to relent, and I had to remain focused. A quick check of my watch around mile 23 indicated that my average mile pace dropped down to 7:14 per mile, and I was on track to finish in the 3:10 range.
By mile 24, I knew that I almost had this marathon in the bag, and I was on pace to set a massive PR. But, before I could bring it home and celebrate, there was this hill between mile 24 and mile 25 I had to climb. Not as bad as the hill between mile 18 and 19, but it was an annoying obstacle between me and the finish. So, I braced myself and grinded it out while doing my best to maintain a pace close to my goal pace of 7:15 per mile. After hitting the mile 25 mark, I knew the finish line was not far away, that I was almost done, and I wanted to finish up strong. Picked up the pace once more, grinded out another small hill that was in the way, and held on for dear life.
As I approached mile 26, I noticed the finish line in the distance, and that was enough motivation for me to further pick up the pace book it to the finish. Checked my watch one more time, and the Race Screen App told me I was on track to finish in 3:10:06. Oh hell no, I thought to myself, I have a good shot at finishing under 3:10, I made it this far, and I am not going to throw away this opportunity. I made a left hand turn and entered the finishing chute to book it all the way to the finish, and got so excited that the announcer had to remind me to pull up my mask on the way in (which I did!). I saw the race clock at about 150 meters to go, and it was ticking away at around 3:09:30, and that is when I knew that a sub-3:10 finish was possible. Ran the final meters while keeping a close eye on the race clock to make sure I wasn’t slowing down while approaching the finish. Crossed the finish line with my arms up when the race clock ticked past 3:09:56. With that, it was over. A stretch marathon goal that I thought was not possible in to reach in the possible became reality.
Mile splits between mile 21 and 26 were as follows: 6:53, 6:46, 7:01, 7:02, 7:25, 6:58. Final 0.2 was ran in 6:43. Ran the second half in 1:34:32, or 50 seconds faster than my first half.
Final official finishing time: 3:09:54. Good for 17th overall. And a 21 minute marathon PR.

Post-Race

After crossing the finish line, I stopped my watch and did a quick check on my body to make sure that I wasn’t experiencing any physical difficulties (I was still functional and alert). Grabbed my post-finish snacks and drinks on my way out of the finishing chute, and checked my official finishing time on my phone; that was when I learned that I finished under 3:10, which was the best possible outcome for me. Hung around for a bit to watch other runners finish their own races, and chatted with other runners that were in the finish area. After about an hour, I slowly walked back to my hotel for a much-needed hot shower and a change of clothes, checked out of my hotel room, and headed over to a nearby restaurant for a celebratory lunch. Stopped by a brewery next to the train station that afternoon for a quick celebratory drink before taking the Northeast Regional back to NYC.
All in all, this race went as perfectly as you could imagine. Because of the rolling hills that were prevalent in the course, I was concerned that I was going to fry myself for going too hard on the hills, especially during the second half of the race when bad decisions during the first half come back to bite many people’s asses. Thus, I decided to start conservatively and made sure I was holding myself together during the first half without overcooking myself, and make a break for it for the second half if I had enough left in the tank. This proved to be an excellent decision on my part. Second, I was expecting to be in no man’s land for most parts of the race because of my expected finishing time; indeed, I was in no man’s land for some stretches of the race, but surprisingly I had company near or ahead of me for most parts of the race; I made sure I was keeping those runners within line of sight with consistent effort, not pacing myself faster than I was comfortable with at the time. Third, taking the Maurten 320 the night before helped me a lot in terms of fueling as I was able to tap into it during the first half of the race, when I was getting my rhythm established. Finally, the weather was perfect for running; the temperatures at the start were in the high 40s and did not creep up beyond the low 50s, making conditions ideal for racing. The only obstacle I faced was that there were 11 mph winds from the north, which made the first half a bit challenging. I opted to hold back during the first half so to not fight against the wind and crank it up during second half where the wind was basically a non-factor. Overall, I committed to a reasonable finishing time as my primary goal, stuck to and ran my own race throughout, and made sure I was well fueled and well rested beforehand. These were the ingredients that propelled me to a successful day on the course and helped me nab a huge marathon PR in the process.

2020.10.16 18:08 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 6 - Philadelphia Eagles(1-3-1) vs Baltimore Ravens (4-1)

Philadelphia Eagles (1-3-1) vs Baltimore Ravens (4-1)
The Eagles dug themselves deeper into a hole and lost their title as Kings of Shit Mountain with their disappointing loss to the Steelers last Sunday. Rookie WR Chase Claypool made the Eagles defense look silly over and over on his way to 4 TDs, including a 35 TD reception with under 3 minutes to go to seal the game. Jim Schwartz thought that he is smarter than everyone else and believed it was a good idea to put his failing LB Nate Gerry on Claypool despite the fact Claypool had already scored 3 TDs on the day and Gerry has given up 23 receptions on 23 targets for 267 yards 4 TDs and a 154.6 passer rating. Schwartz will most definitely trott Gerry out there this week against the Baltimore Ravens who will have reigning MVP QB Lamar Jackson out there who can pick apart defenses with his arm and his legs. Schwartz will have to gameplan better than he has in previous weeks to keep Jackson contained and ensure talented Baltimore TEs Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle have someone covering them who isn’t named Nate Gerry. The Eagles have the talent on the defensive line to keep Jackson in the pocket and force him to beat them with his arm where the Eagles will get a boost in the secondary with the return of Will Parks who will make his first start for the Eagles after signing in the offseason. That said, the talent hasn’t been missing on the defense outside of the LB position, instead the gameplans have been nonexistent from Jim Schwartz who consistently decides his scheme is the most important piece and he can just run it regardless of what the offense runs. If that mindset continues expect another L for the Eagles and another big fantasy day for Lamar Jackson. On the other side of the ball the Eagles actually look like they are beginning to click. The offensive line held the Steelers top rated pass defense in check for the better part of the day and a weapon has emerged from the depths of the practice squad. In the past two games, Carson Wentz has a perfect passing rating when targeting Travis Fulgham who has consistently been able to find openings in the defense and make big catches for the QB. Wentz may get Jackson and Jeffrey back this Sunday as well which would give him some more confidence that guys can get open and make catches, both are currently listed as questionable, so we will see. This game most likely ends up as another L for the Eagles, but if they want any chance to win they are going to need their QB to make some big plays and they are going to need their defense to slow down the Ravens high powered offense. Go Eagles!

Ravens 27 - Eagles 26
Baltimore (8-6) had a 27-17 lead and a first down at the Philadelphia 11 when Joe Flacco threw an interception to give the Eagles (5-9) another chance. Rookie Carson Wentz directed a drive that produced a field goal with 2:22 remaining. The Eagles got the ball back at their 41 with 1:39 to go. A 24-yard completion to tight end Zach Ertz and a pass interference call against rookie Tavon Young set up a 4-yard touchdown run by Wentz that got Philadelphia within a point. First-year coach Doug Pederson dropped his balls on the table and went for the victory, declining the conversion kick for a 2-point try. "I wanted to win the football game," Pederson said. Wentz threw over the middle to tight Jordan Matthews, who couldn't get his hands on a tipped ball and the Ravens won by a single point 27-26.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles took on their cross state rival after coming off their first win of the season the week before and the Eagles feel flat on their face making the trip across the state. Jim Schwartz showed up with zero game plan and had no answer to runs by Chase Claypool, despite the fact the Steelers used similar plays earlier this seasons. Claypool owned the Eagles Sunday scoring 4 TDs including one with under 3 minutes left to put the nail in the coffin when Jim Schwartz put one of the worst coverages LBs in the league Nate Gerry on Claypool 1v1 with no help. The offense played their best game of the year this season with a break out game by Travis Fulgham, but Jim Schwartz and the defense never gave them a shot.
Ravens - The Ravens took on their division rival Bengals in Week 5. The Baltimore Ravens defense arguably put up the best performance by any team in the NFL this season, allowing just a field goal to an overmatched Cincinnati Bengals team in a 27-3 victory Sunday. Baltimore shut down Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati offense, holding the Bengals to just 205 yards on the afternoon while forcing three turnovers and completely dominating the line of scrimmage in the win. The Ravens would have had a shutout if not for a late field goal by the Bengals that was purely done to break the shutout.

Philadelphia has produced a 2-2-1 record in the all-time series vs. Baltimore, including a 2-0 mark at home. The Ravens are one of nine NFL teams that the Eagles have never lost to at Lincoln Financial Field (since the 2003 season).
Philadelphia ranks 3rd in the NFL with 18.0 sacks, trailing only L.A. Rams (20.0) and Pittsburgh (20.0). Brandon Graham (54.0) – tied for the team lead with 3.0 sacks – is 1.0 sack shy of surpassing Hugh Douglas (54.5, 1998-2002, ‘04) for the 4th-most sacks in Eagles history, behind Reggie White (124.0, 1985-92), Trent Cole (85.5, 2005-14) and Clyde Simmons (76.0, 1986-93).
Miles Sanders has produced the 3rd-most rushing yards (316) in the NFL since his season debut in Week 2, trailing only Dalvin Cook (439) and Todd Gurley (319) in that category.
Travis Fulgham led the Eagles with 10 receptions for 152 yards and 1 TD in Week 5 at Pittsburgh. Fulgham is one of only three NFL players to register 10+ catches for 150+ yards and 1 TD in a game this season (also Davante Adams and George Kittle).

Stats to Know
Deep Passing
The body types are totally different, but WR Hollywood Brown poses a major deep threat to the Eagles defense, just as WR Chase Claypool did last week No WR in the league has more deep targets (beyond 20 yards) than Brown does, at 15, also catching 4 of 4 catchable deep balls. The next closes for the Eagles is Desean Jackson with 6 targets and 2 catches on 2 catchable deep balls.We don’t know if Desean will be a go for this game, but tell me which Eagle(s) you want defending Brown’s speed on deep balls or on end-arounds. Slay’s out and Mills is not fast. Looking at the QBs slinging these deep balls, Lamar Jackson is 7th in deep ball %, at 16.3% yet 24th in Adjusted Completion % (focusing the stat on QB agency). Wentz is slightly better in that statistic, good for 19th at 40%.
Matchups to Watch
Ravens Multifaceted Offense vs.Eagles Predictable Defense
The Ravens have a diverse offensive attack led by the reigning NFL MVP and a creative Offensive Coordinator that is more than capable of shredding the vanilla Eagles defense. Thus far in 2020, Schwartz has shown little in the way of molding his defense to help cater to the personnel he has in place that has also regressed in his tenure. I’ve said repeatedly throughout this season, as well as in the run up to this season, that the Eagles defense took several steps back in personnel and overall talent to where their strengths really can’t hide the deficiencies in the back end. Other than Darius Slay, the only member of the back seven who can cover, the Eagles struggle to match against opposing offenses in man and zone coverage. They have several hybrid players who theoretically are jacks of all trades and masters of none; in a cruel twist of fate, that was entirely predictable, the Eagles defense has players that struggle with any kind of basic trait that helps a modern defense leaving them as effectively jacks of no trade. Lamar Jackson will execute a diverse rushing attack with 3 capable RBs and his own athleticism that presents a unique challenge for every NFL defense to defend. The Ravens also have a quality offensive line to aid him in targeting a very good Tight End in Mark Andrews and other capable receivers. This offense uses motions and other misdirection plays, as well as play action, at near league leading rates. This is a problem for the Eagles defense as not only are they not talented enough to stop it, they struggle in alignment and execute against motion, misdirection, and play action. Their linebackers are unable to process coverage assignments and frequently blow assignments leading to big plays. Their corners, outside of Slay, struggle to cover at all. It’s a bad recipe for an overmatched defense. Schwartz will need to get this group to play at the level they did two weeks ago in San Francisco in an effort to slow down the Ravens offense. This is one of the best teams in the NFL. The Eagles offense can’t be counted on to continue to match its opponents in a shootout given their personnel limitations on that side of the ball. And when they do find success, the defense struggles to play complimentary football - just like last week. This unit needs to show up or this will likely be a blowout.
Eagles Receiving Weapons vs. Ravens Secondary
Even without Earl Thomas, the Ravens still field one of the best secondaries in the NFL and are capable of executing a number of coverage assignments. They possess two outstanding corners, Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters, who are able to match up with whatever scrubs the Eagles pull off the street this week. Travis Fulgham is fresh off a career day and looks like the first viable receiver the Eagles have had in some time but you have to figure at some point his sudden meteoric rise will normalize soon. That normalization could likely be this week against a formidable secondary. Regardless of when that comes, Fulgham has acquitted himself nicely in the offense and should be a full time starting forward. Absent the return of Desean Jackson or the season debut of Alshon Jeffery, this is a receiver group that is still mightily undermanned due to injury and a lackluster front office. Philly could stand to see a reemergence of Zach Ertz from the struggle bus and produce more than the very little he’s contributed this season so far. Lastly, the Eagles need Carson Wentz to pick up where he left off after a strong performance against the Steelers. PFF graded Wentz as a top 5 QB last week and it was easily his most complete performance of the season which is a notable brightspot in an otherwise disappointing start to the season. This Ravens defense is no joke and is very opportunistic as they force a lot of turnovers. Wentz’s margin for error is already very small given the situation around him but this game requires him to better manage the game on each play to give the offense a shot.
Eagles Decimated Offensive Line vs Ravens Attacking Defensive Front
The Eagles Offensive Line is a surprisingly decent group despite the ridiculous amount of injuries they continue to take on so far this season. The only projected starter left on the offensive line is center Jason Kelce. Lane Johnson is questionable heading into Sunday’s contest and hasn’t practiced this week. He likely won’t go as he’s been dealing with an ankle injury that’s plagued him since training camp. Even if he does return, Johnson is likely to continue to be plagued with the injury bug as long as he isn’t on injured reserve. Jeff Stoutland deserves all the praise in the world for coaching up the current cast of characters on the OL as they haven’t played as horribly as you might imagine against stiff competition. The Steelers defensive front is one of the best in football and the Eagles OL did more than enough to help put them in a position to win last week. They face another difficult test Sunday as they face a complete Ravens front with a DC in Wink Martindale that loves to blitz more than any DC in the NFL. Matthew Judon, Pernell McPhee, Tyus Bowser, and Calais Campbell are a strong unit; Martindale isn’t afraid to bring anyone on a blitz. This offensive line needs to continue to communicate well to handle the onslaught of pressure they are about to face on Sunday. They don’t have the depth of talent to be expected to win consistently; if they play like they did last week, that could be good enough. It’s a very tall order though.

2020.10.02 18:30 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 4 - Philadelphia Eagles(0-2-1) at San Francisco 49ers (2-1)

Philadelphia Eagles (0-2-1) at San Francisco 49ers (2-1)
The Eagles are off to their worst start since 1999 when Eagles coach Doug Pederson was the starting QB for the Eagles in Andy Reid’s first season; where the Eagles started 0-3 and finished 5-11. The Eagles look to be on a similar trajectory this season with their 0-2-1 start following an embarrassing tie to the Bengals last week. The Eagles have the toughest remaining schedule in the NFL this season and the Eagles look like a bad football team. There really isn’t any other description of this team. They are bad on every level and it starts from the top. The team has played undisciplined and the offensive and defensive play-calling has been atrocious and has lacked identity. It seems like the game-planning this season has been phoned in with the coaches running the same vanilla offense and defense week in and week out and expecting the players to win it for them which they haven’t. Carson Wentz has regressed to the point he is unrecognizable and is making mistakes from his rookie season. His coaches don’t seem interested in helping him with fix those mistakes either as Doug Pederson and Press Taylor have failed to recognize Carson’s breakdowns in his mechanics. Their gameplans have done him no favors either utilizing a large number of 5 and 7 step drops despite having a multitude of injuries on the offensive line and at the wide receiver position. If the Eagles have any hope of salvaging their season they will need to pull out a win on Sunday night football against the 49ers and their strong defense. The 49ers are dealing with some injuries of their own with Bosa and Sherman on the IR on the defensive side and Jimmy G and Mosert most likely missing the game on offense. The San Fran defense is still tough with an impressive defensive line and speed all over the field. If Doug cares about Carson at all he will move the pocket and rely on Miles Sanders on the ground to keep the pass rush honest. On the defensive side, Schwartz will need to continue to mix it up with blitzes like he did against the Bengals, but he will need to pull his out of his ass in the secondary and learn that his CBs should not be playing 8-10 yards off the ball when playing man coverage. If Schwartz does a lot of the same in the secondary it could be a long day because Shanahan’s offense will exploit it and lead to another Eagles loss, this time in Prime Time. The Eagles will need to figure out how to get a win this week, or this streak of 3 straight playoff appearances will come to an end. Go Birds!

Eagles 34 - 49ers 10
The Eagles looked to win their 6th game in a row against the winless San Francisco 49ers. The Eagles got off to a slow start, only leading 3–0 after the first quarter. Late in the second quarter, the Eagles blew the game open. Carson Wentz found tight end Zach Ertz for a 1-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone off of a bootleg pass, and Jalen Mills intercepted rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown. The 49ers appeared to have some life in the third quarter, following a Carson Wentz interception, leading to a Matt Breida 22 yard touchdown reception. However, the Eagles responded, with Wentz connecting with Alshon Jeffery for a 53-yard touchdown, putting the game out of reach. The Eagles went on to win 33–10 and advanced to 7–1 on the season. Despite the win, the Eagles played a sloppy game on a rainy afternoon in Philadelphia.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles welcomed the Cincinnati Bengals to Lincoln Financial Field seeking their first win over Cincinnati since 2000. After a scoreless first quarter, the two teams traded field goals in the second, before the Bengals took a 10-6 lead on a touchdown reception by Tee Higgins. Wentz responded on the ensuing drive, as he threw his 100th career touchdown pass to Greg Ward to put the Eagles in front 13-10 at halftime. After the Eagles added another Jake Elliott field goal, the Bengals reclaimed a one-point lead with Higgins' second touchdown of the afternoon. Cincinnati would pad its lead to seven points with two fourth-quarter field goals. Trailing 23-16 with just over 3 minutes left in regulation, Philadelphia drove down the field to score the game-tying touchdown on a 7-yard run for Wentz. In overtime, both defenses held strong, with neither team being able to get into field goal range until the final drive, when the Eagles got to the Bengals' 41. However, a costly false start on Matt Pryor brought Philadelphia out of field goal range. The Eagles punted the ball, and the game ended on the following play with the Bengals at their own 20. Despite his milestone, Wentz's struggles continued as he also threw two interceptions for the third straight game and finished the game with a 62.8 passer rating. Philadelphia improved to 0-2-1 with the tie, but failed to snap their winless streak against Cincinnati and fell to 0-3-2 in their last five against the Bengals, including an 0-2-1 mark at Lincoln Financial Field. This marked the Eagles' first tie since 2008, which was also against the Bengals.
49ers - The way the San Francisco 49ers played, missing quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and a slew of starters wasn't an issue against the woeful and winless New York Giants, who were also missing their best player in Saquan Barkley. 49ers backup Nick Mullens threw for 343 yards and a touchdown and the Niners controlled the ball on offense, took it away on defense and had another easy day on the East Coast in a 36-9 win at MetLife Stadium Sunday. San Francisco scored on seven of its first eight possessions. It would have been all eight but a snap-hold problem led to Gould missing a 55-yarder. He connected from 52, 32 and 26 yards. The Niners' ninth possession ended the game.

What if I told you the Niners have two of the league’s best receiving Running Backs? (Yes, one is hurt). What if I also told you the Eagles’ defenders are presently poop covering RBs against the pass? That about sums it up. Mr. McKinnon should have a fun day.
Matchups to Watch
Carson Wentz
This is the only real battle that matters since it's extremely difficult to win in the NFL with poor QB play. Wentz is among the worst QBs in the league to start the season and it could be a significant amount of time before he changes course. Even the most stalwart Wentz supporters must admit he is also a problem with this team right now. With that said, in order to win this game, and any game moving forward, the Eagles need Carson Wentz to improve. Philly can't use the injury excuse in this particular matchup as the Niners are one of the only teams to be in a similar or worse injury predicament than the Eagles. Even with the injuries, the Niners are able to show up and show out on a weekly basis... They are a great team. Wentz has had issues in all areas pertaining to play. He needs to be more precise, smarter, and more relaxed. This team sucks; it's likely no amount of heroism if going to pull this team from the depths of the league this season. The only thing Carson Wentz can do is his job. He's not responsible for coaching blunders, other injuries, or a GM that can't get anything right. Just get better and when he does, this team can actually be competitive.
Kyle Shanahan and his offensive genius vs Jim Schwartz and the LBs and Safeties
It should be no surprise the Eagles LBs and Safeties struggle in coverage as they did nothing in the offseason to add players that can cover. Plain and simple. This is a defense with a great defensive line, a great CB1, and that's it. They struggle to play consistent run defense now with the mediocre talent in the second and third levels. Kyle Shanahan is one of the most innovative offensive minds in the NFL; if you thought the thumping Sean McVay gave us was painful, wait until we see what's in store from the guy who mentored McVay. Shanahan lives for finding your weakest links in the LB and Safety rooms and exploiting that deficiency mercilessly. Nate Gerry is about to have his worst game ever - and that says something. George Kittle should return for this contest which is a tremendous mismatch that the Niners will exploit. Even the best cover guys in the league struggle against Kittle as he's just a monster. Shanahan will use all kinds of motion, misdirection, and play action that will cause this defense to struggle mightily absent some sort of miracle where they learn to play. I have faith that the defensive line can play well, but as we saw in week 2, all the motion, misdirection, and play action teams use can neutralize a pass rush. Lastly, can Schwartz even put his guys in better positions? Yeah, probably not.
Doug Pederson’s Offensive Game Plan vs the Niners Defense
I tried to have a more nuanced look at this matchup but it is difficult. The Eagles offense is marred by underachieving talent and injuries to start the season. Furthermore, they weren't given enough to work with by the front office but that is an entirely different discussion. Point blank: the offensive coaching staff, led by Doug Pederson, has struggled to consistently put its players in successful situations to start the season. It's not all Doug's fault but a large part of it is. There wasn't a real identity to this offense to start and that's only gotten worse 4 weeks in. This roster isn't going to suddenly improve overnight, if at all this season, so it's up to the coaching staff to help the offense succeed. There are a lot of new cooks involved in creating the offensive game plan but not enough overall direction from the man in charge. The Niners defense has plenty of injuries to key players as well; can they design a function offense built on spare parts to put up a fight? Or will they punt?

2020.09.25 20:35 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 3 - Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) at Philadelphia Eagles(0-2)

Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-2)
The Eagles are off to their worst start with a real coach since 2003 (I consider 2013-2015 non-existent) when they also dropped their first two games of the season. The team would like a repeat of that season where following a week 3 bye,the team rebounded to defeat the Bills 23-13. The Eagles ripped off 12 wins in their remaining 14 games following their 0-2 start. Maybe the Eagles will be able to do the same, but they will have to shake the injury bug first. The Eagles will be without first round pick Jalen Raegor this week who underwent surgery on his hand to repair a torn UC ligament in his thumb. The Eagles may also be without Fletcher Cox who is dealing with an oblique injury. The Cox injury should be watched closely if he can’t go, Joe Mixon and Joe Burrow will have a much easier day against the struggling defense. Last week against the Rams, the defense was under prepared and unable to stop anyone. The Rams took advantage of Jim Schwartz’s consistently odd decision to have his CBs, play so far off the line of scrimmage, giving a free release to the WRs and allowing easy short passes. If Schwartz does the same this week, it will be another long day for the Eagles defense and a great fantasy day for Tyler Boyd, who Bengals Joe Burrow connected with 7 times last week including 1 for a TD. On the other side of the ball Doug and Carson will both need to be better than the last two weeks. For Carson, he needs to get out of his own head and play with confidence. For Doug, he needs to find some creativity and help his 5th year QB. He would do well to get Carson moving and utilize the RBs more in the flat and screen game. However, if we see more of the same we saw in weeks 1 and 2 from the Eagles coaching staff, we should expect another loss. Hopefully that is not the case and Carson and the coaches can learn from their mistakes in weeks 1-2 and pull our a win this week. Go Birds!

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles' struggles continued in their home opener against the Los Angeles Rams. An early fumble by Miles Sanders led to a Rams touchdown by Tyler Higbee. After the Eagles cut their deficit to four with a Jake Elliott field goal, Los Angeles responded with a Robert Woods touchdown run followed by a second Higbee touchdown catch. Trailing 21-3, the Eagles closed the deficit to five points by halftime with touchdown runs by Wentz and Sanders. After forcing a three-and-out on the Rams' first possession of the second half, the Eagles would drive to the Los Angeles 21, only for Wentz's first down pass to be picked off by Darious Williams, turning the momentum back in the Rams' favor as they would outscore the Eagles 16-3 the rest of the way. Despite not being sacked once during the game, Wentz finished the day with a 56.5 passer rating, completing 26 of 43 passes for 242 yards and two interceptions. The 37-19 blowout loss dropped Philadelphia to 0-2 for the first time since the 2015 season, and marked the Eagles' first home opener loss since that same season. It was also the first home loss to the Rams franchise since the opener of the 2001 season.
Bengals - After losing their regular season-opening game at home, the Bengals then traveled to Cleveland to face the Browns for Battle of Ohio Round 1. In the first quarter, the Bengals scored first when Randy Bullock kicked a 38-yard field goal to make it 3-0. Though, the Browns took the lead when Nick Chubb ran for an 11-yard TD to make it 7-3. In the second quarter, the Browns went up by double digits when Baker Mayfield found O'dell Beckham Jr. on a 43-yard TD pass to make it 14-3. The Bengals then came within 4 after Joe Burrow found C.J. Uzomah on a 23-yard TD pass to make it 14-10. Mayfield then found Kareem Hunt on a 6-yard TD pass to put the Browns up by double digits, 21-10. The Bengals closed out the half when Randy Bullock kicked a 43-yard field goal to make it 21-13 at halftime. In the third quarter, the Browns went back up by double digits when Chubb ran for a 1-yard TD to make it 28-13. The Bengals drew closer with Bullock's 27-yard field goal to make it 28-16. In the fourth quarter, the Bengals were able to get within 5 when Burrow found Mike Thomas on a 4-yard TD pass to make the score 28-23. Though, the Browns would go back up by double digits yet again when Hunt punched the ball in for a 1-yard TD to make it 35-23. The Bengals wrapped up the scoring when Burrow found Tyler Boyd on a 9-yard TD pass to make the final score 35-30.

Stats to Know
QB Adjusted Completion %
What’s one thing rookie Joe Burrow and 5th-year Carson Wentz have in common? They have not been terribly accurate so far. PFF has an Adjusted Completion % stat that accounts for clear drops, spikes, throw aways, batted passes, and throws made while getting hit. Burrow and Wentz are near the bottom in AC%, with 70.4 and 70.3, respectively. Interesting to note a bit of the distribution within the array of aforementioned stats: while Burrow has had one of the lower rates of on-target passes dropped by the receiver (4.1%), Wentz doubled that at 8.4%, good for 5th-highest. Yes, Wentz has stunk, but...
Matchups to Watch
Rookie versus Veteran, Which QB Has Poise Down 0-2?
With two consecutive weeks of porous defense from both the Eagles and Bengals defensive units, this Sunday's matchup should rest squarely on the shoulders of each offensive unit. Will the Eagles be able to rely on fifth year starter Wentz? Will he be able to shake off two tumultuous weeks and put together a consistent offensive performance? Will the Bengals weapons coalesce around their rookie Burrow? Will he be able to put together his first complete NFL game and demonstrate that this season is the turning point for the franchise? A big piece of Wentz stabilizing his game time performance will be continuing his focus on short-time-to-throw plays. From Week 1 with 8 sacks versus the Washington Football Team to Week 2 and zero sacks versus the Rams with the vaunted Aaron Donald, the Eagles Offensive Line and Wentz’ pocket choices resulted in less lost yards and broken plays. Unfortunately, key turnovers again forced short-yardage scoring situations and massive tempo swings. Wentz needs to take advantage of the cleaner pocket that will likely be available versus the Bengals (2 sacks on the year so far) and finish drives cleanly to put the game away. Without rookie WR Jalen Reagor (placed on IR with a thumb injury after Week 2), Wentz will have to make use of the remainder of his threats, including veteran DeSean Jackson who had 6 catches on 9 targets for 64 yards against the superior Rams’ defensive backfield. Joe Burrow has had the classic introductory NFL QB experience. A high-flying game versus the Browns last week, with 300+ yards passing, 3TDs and zero ints was fantastic bounce back from Week 1 versus the Chargers. 193 yards, 0 TDs, and an int will not win the game for the Bengals versus the Eagles, even if Wentz struggles. A key focus for Burrow will be settling into the routine and relationships he’s formed with his offensive weapons. AJ Green remains one of the best WR threats in the NFL and his slow start to the season (8 catches for 80 yards) could end at any time, in any game with a QB like Burrow. Burrow threw a nearly record setting number of passes during the almost-come-from-behind loss versus the Browns; if the Bengals are able to establish their run-game and abuse the Philadelphia secondary in a similar way to the Rams offensive scheme, then Burrow could have a very big day. If he is forced to drop back 60+ times, and Joe Mixon is again held under 75 yards on the ground, the Bengals and Burrow may have a hard time. Keep an eye on how comfortable each QB is feeling, and whether they can establish good tempo. That will be key to offensive production this weekend.
Coaching Conundrum; Pederson versus Taylor
At the core of the NFL these days is the combat between offensive and defensive schemes. Both coaches come from a background of coaching QB play and offensive schemes, though from different eras and coaching trees. How they go about using that experience to enable their teams to a secure a necessary win this week will make or break their seasons. Doug Pederson, at the helm of a revamped offensive coaching tree with the addition of Quarterbacks Coach Press Taylor as Passing Game Coordinator, has had a rough three year stretch of offensive stumbles. Since the miraculous Super Bowl 52 season (2017), the Eagles have consistently failed to be productive, with a lot of the challenges relating to lack of roster depth and poor player improvement through misaligned coaching. This is the third consecutive year of stuttering offense to begin the season and a big piece of the matchup versus the Bengals will be how well the Eagles can settle in. Coach Pederson has made it clear that the lack of full-speed off-season practice plays a big role in the Eagle’s struggles so far; so it remains to be seen when and if both units can make use of this gametime practice to solidify the small flashes of prior success we’ve seen. Opposite Pederson is Coach Taylor, in his second year of a complete rebuild, now with the (ideally career-long) franchise WB in Burrow. Hailing from the Shanahan line, through the LA Rams McVay, Taylor was brought into Cincinnati to recreate the organization’s coaching structure and form a new core for the team around veteran WR AJ Green. The 2019 season showed marked improvement throughout, particularly in run production and passer protection; the addition of Covid-related practice limitations have also taken their toll on the Bengals’ preparations for this season, as exemplified by the Week 1 drubbing by the Ravens. Taylor returns this season with second-year offensive coordinator Brian Callahan, formerly the QB coach for the Raiders. The cerebral talent in the Bengals organization is clearly arrayed around giving Burrow the best possible chance to shine; and they may just do so against an extremely poorly performing Eagles defense. Being able to establish consistent offensive strength and consistency throughout this season will be a key part of whether this new coaching structure is able to flourish in Cincinnati or if yet more change is needed to remake the franchise. During game day, keep an eye out on how these coaches make use of their star players, now that the very early season yips and stumbles should be behind them. Whoever can appropriately adjust to the flow of the game and take advantage of the others mistakes will win this football game.
The Big Punt: How Special Teams Makes An Impact
Kevin versus Cameron, Huber versus Johnston, two players that may very well decide the nature of this Bengals versus Eagles matchup. These titans of the turf, two punters to rule them all, and two punters to pin them deep; two punters waiting on call, and two punters to make fans weep. In lieu of offensive production, and in hopes of good defensive play, Kevin Huber and Cameron Johnston bring their punting prowess to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday. Hailing from opposite sides of the Earth, Huber from Cincinnati itself, and Johnston from Geelong Australia, these two are some of the most capable foot-based deliverers of the football to opposing teams. Huber holds nearly all of the Bengals franchise records in punting statistics; and Johnston holds the highest gross and net punting averages in a single Eagles season. The third year Australian punter is known by Eagles fans for his insanely long hang-time and penchant for pinning the NY Giants inside the 20 (20+ times in four games). Huber is loved by the Bengals fanbase as both their longest tenured player and his consistency over the past 13 years. He has missed just 2 of 180 possible games, and has been perennially top 10 at his position. Both players are in the final year of their contracts, so effective performance is a must for maximum salary gains. Keep an eye out on how effective these two are in establishing and keeping good field position. If both teams are struggling for consistency, these swings may be the key to a late drive that puts the game away. Additionally, with every punt comes the magic of a muffed punt return. If you’re a particular connoisseur of special teams play, watch and see if these punters add any special spin or location to their strikes; and key turnover last week in this position kept the Eagles hopeful.

2020.09.11 17:32 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 1 - Philadelphia Eagles(0-0) at Washington Football Team (0-0)

Philadelphia Eagles (0-0) at the Washington Football Team
The 2020 Philadelphia Eagles season is the franchise's 88th season in the National Football League and the fifth under head coach Doug Pederson. The Eagles will try to improve on their 9–7 record from 2019 where they made the playoffs, but lost in the NFC Divisional game against the Seattle Seahawks. They will begin that journey Sunday afternoon as they take a trip down 95 to face off against the division rival with a new name Washington Football Team. To go with the name they also have a new coach in Ron Rivera who is looking for a fresh start after spending the last nine years as the Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers. Rivera inherits a defense that has 4 first round picks on the defensive line that will be facing off against an injury riddled offensive line of the Eagles as they will be without starting LT Andre Dillard and starting All-Pro RG Brandon Brooks. The Eagles bought back former LT Jason Peters who will look to protect Carson Wentz’s blind side. IF the Eagles OL is able to give Wentz time, he proved last year against the WTF that he has great chemistry with Jackson who has torched his former team in the past. Defensively Eagles fans will get their first look at their revamped secondary which will include Pro Bowler Darius Slay and Jalen Mills at safety. They will look to keep Terry McLaurin under control as he burnt the Eagles secondary in both games last season with long TDs. If the Eagles can get a lead early, I think their defense should be able to keep Dwayne Haskins under control and force the second year QB into some turnovers. Always fun to start the season vs a division rival and happy to have some football again in these crazy times. Go Birds!

Eagles 37 - Washington Football Team 27
The Eagles looked to keep their playoff hopes alive and and opened up the scoring with a Jake Elliot FG in the first quarter. The lead was short lived as Dwayne Haskins hooked up with Terry McLaurin for a 75 yard touchdown pass. The Eagles went into half-time trailing 10-14, but took back the lead in the 3rd quarter on a Miles Sanders TD reception that put the Eagles up 17-14. The Eagles and Washington Football Team traded TD passes in the 4th quarter before the Washington Football Team regained the league with a pair of Dustin Hopkins FGs put the Washington Football Team's up 24-27. Carson Wentz answered the call leading the Eagles on a four and half minute 75 yard touchdown drive that culminated in a Greg Ward TD reception. The Eagles defense forced a fumble on the ensuing drive which was returned for a TD by Nigel Bradham for a nail in the coffin putting the Eagles up 10 with no time on the clock to give the Eagles the win.

PFF Stats to Know
Play Action Passing
[Threshold = QBs with at least 20% snap count of the QB with the highest snap count of Play Action for the season] In the 2019-2020 season, no QB had a worse completion rate via Play Action than WFT’s Dwayne Haskins at 54.9% and only 2 others had worse such Passer Rating. For comparison, the Eagles’ Carson Wentz was at the top of the bottom 3rd in both metrics. Whereas has Wentz fared near the top of Play Action % of snaps during his NFL tenure and his completion % and Passer Rating have both ranked near the top in each of ‘16-‘18, in 2019 he did not do well in that respect. How Wentz performs in Play Action with injuries at the OL and WR positions, as well as how much the coaching staff will even ask him to turn his back to this particular DL and keep it...I’m not sure.
Matchups to Watch
Washington Defensive Line vs Eagles Offensive Line
NFL battles always start in the trenches and this is perhaps the biggest advantage the WFT has against the Eagles in this Week 1 tilt. Washington always had a formidable front that lead to intriguing battles between the two teams but the addition of Chase Young and the injuries the Eagles have already sustained make this match up concerning for Philly. The Eagles projected Week 1 starting OL prior to the injuries was, from left to right: Dillard, Seumalo, Kelce, Brooks, and Lane Johnson. Now, the Eagles will start: Peters, Seumalo, Kelce, TBD, TBD. Lane Johnson has practiced everyday this week in a limited capacity which makes me believe that he'll start but it's an uneasy feeling knowing he's working his way back from injury too. The logical guess at RG is Matt Pryor, but they've also tried out Nate Herbig in practice. Either way, the Eagles have a massive downgrade at RG with Brandon Brooks out. Fortunately, the Eagles may have accidentally upgraded in the short term with Jason Peters at LT but the depth in the trenches is already spread too thin. The Eagles are lucky to be as deep as they are on the OL given they aren't totally screwed (yet) but the current state of line makes this a very formidable match up for the Football Team (get a damn team name, jerks) to take advantage of. Additionally, they aren't just deep at EDGE, they are deep at DT as well. Payne, Allen, and Ioannidis are very stout and capable of dominating opposing OLs. Washington's roster is very thin but it isn't on the defensive line. They have more than enough ammunition to put the Eagles in difficult situations. This mismatch will force the coaching staff to be creative in their run designs and how they give help to the OL in pass protection.
Washington Secondary vs Eagles Passing Attack
The Eagles much beleaguered WR room went through a mini-makeover in the offseason and a lot of new, young, and fast faces were added to the mix. What they lack in proven talent, outside of DeSean Jackson's return, they make up for in athleticism. One thing Howie Roseman said this offseason was he was frustrated with the lack of speed on the team. It took him a while to understand that athleticism does matter. It's not just that the new group of receivers are fast, but they all have strong overall athletic profiles. But as previously mentioned, this is an unproven group going up against a very weak opposition. WFT brought back Kendall Fuller this offseason, who was a real good jack-of-all-trades player in the secondary for the Chiefs last season. His status for Sunday is questionable given his limited participation this week in practice. Opposite him is former Eagles favorite Ronald Darby. If I'm Doug Pederson, I make it a point to go after him all day. Even when Darby is at his best, which isn't often these days, he has absolutely zero ball skills. Washington may play Fabian Moreau if Fuller can't go, which is another defender the Eagles should target. Jimmy Moreland and Landon Collins are quality players, more so the latter, but they can't hide the deficiencies that should be easily exploitable by the Eagles. Remember, Philly put up over 30 in week 15 last year with less in the WR room than they currently have against a secondary that really isn't better than it was then. If Jalen Reagor is able to go, that would add another dimension to this offense the Eagles have lacked for a long time. If the Eagles can do a good enough job slowing down Washington's front, they are more than capable of picking apart a subpar secondary. And I didn't even talk about Ertz and Goedert! Or Miles Sanders through the air!
Washington Offensive Line vs Eagles Defensive Line
Despite the current injury limitations on the Eagles defensive line, this is a matchup that heavily favors the Eagles. Haskins finished 2019 on a positive note in his last 3 starts prior to his ankle injury; one thing he's never been known for is his pocket ability and ability to avoid taking sacks. Put a statue behind a bad offensive line and you are going to have issues. Trent Williams is now gone having finally forced his way out and his logical replacement, rookie Shaadiq Charles, isn't likely to play in week 1. Wes Martin, their starting left guard, is a below average player himself. The only player on the Washington Football Team's offensive line that is good is Brandon Scherff. While the Eagles aren't 100% on the defensive line, they are one of the few teams in the NFL with likely more talent and depth on their defensive line than the Washington Football Team's. Barnett has been limited in practice and has missed the last few weeks with another injury and his status is questionable while Hargrave is likely to miss a couple games as well. The Eagles still have Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, the return of Malik Jackson, and a lot more to throw at this beleaguered unit. Additionally, this is a defensive front that is always stingy against the run under Jim Schwartz even when the DL isn't at peak health. There are a lot of matchups to exploit and Schwartz has a lot of options to exploit them. For his faults as a coordinator with secondary scheming, Schwartz is a God at maximizing the talents of his pass rushers. Given the current state of the Washington OL and Haskins own difficulties under pressure, this is a juicy match up for Philly.
Washington Passing Attack vs Eagles Pass Defense
Washington is incredibly thin and young at the skill positions but that isn't the sort of thing that has deterred the Eagles from allowing big plays in the past. This is a secondary, and really a pass defense in general, that went through a major shake up this offseason and for good reason. The Eagles defense was pretty average per DVOA which was encouraging given what they had, but they consistently allowed big play after big play in 2019. Opposing WR1s absolutely shredded Philadelphia last season as they were automatic monsters against an overmatched, elementary secondary. Darius Slay and NRC were added to the mix and should provide immediate help to this unit. Avonte Maddox will start at CB2; while this is an iffy move, the additions of Slay and NRC should allow the Eagles to help him out a bunch. The Eagles finally have players that can play in man coverage and one of the best CBs in the league in shadow coverage. Schwartz has admitted that he will allow Slay to shadow receivers but likely not 100% of the time. This makes sense as it should be a matchup-specific thing... this is that time. Furthermore, allowing Slay to shadow receivers will lead to considerable scheme changes on defense as they can't play the coverages they've played the last four years while shadowing receivers. What does this look like and how quickly does it come together? Terry McLaurin is the only real commodity at receiver for Washington and he's a tremendous talent. Even when he was the only real receiving threat last year, he still tore the Eagles apart. Another major change for the Eagles is in the safety room with the departure of Malcolm Jenkins. The Eagles added Will Parks to the room but he will miss the first 3 weeks due to injury. They also retained Rodney McLeod; this could be a good thing or bad thing depending on which Rodney shows up. If another year away from knee surgery helps, then he'll be fine. But if last year's version shows up then the Eagles have a big problem. Lastly, the Eagles will be starting Jalen Mills at safety. Apparently, the cure for being a bad cornerback is a position switch to safety despite never playing it in the NFL. All that being said, the middle of the defense is slower and more unknown than it has ever been. LB1 is Nate Gerry. LB2 is Duke Riley. Mills is the new Jenkins. Will Parks is out. Does McLeod have enough left in the tank? Offenses are fast and innovative; the Skins lack a lot of talent on offense but their new offensive scheme could lead to some issues in the middle of the Eagles defense. If I'm Washington, I lean heavily on motions and play action to confuse the middle of the Eagles defense. Get guys who struggle to cover to cover your athletic RBs then take plenty of shots to Terry McLaurin. The Eagles are clearly better at CB than they've been in years but have considerable question marks in the Safety and in the LB rooms as it pertains to pass defense. Better CBs should lead to better pass defense overall but there are matchups to take advantage of. Washington might not be the best team to fully exploit these weaknesses, but they could.

2019.10.29 05:00 assessment_bot [ Non-Fatal ] [ 10/04/2019 ] Piper PA46, Harrisburg/ PA

On October 4, 2019, at 1713 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA46-310P, N4385K, was substantially damaged during a forced landing to the Susquehanna River following a total loss of engine power while on approach to the Harrisburg International Airport (MDT), Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The private pilot and a passenger sustained minor injuries. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and an instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan was filed for the personal flight which originated at the Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC), about 1600, and was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.
In a written statement, the pilot stated he conducted a "thorough" preflight inspection and had the airplane serviced with 30 gallons of 100LL gasoline. He estimated that the 122-gallon fuel system contained 77 gallons of fuel at departure.
The pilot described the flight as "unremarkable." He said that he flew an extended right downwind leg of the traffic pattern, turned and intercepted the final approach course, and was cleared for the visual approach to runway 31 by the MDT tower controller. The pilot said he referenced the course and glideslope indications for the instrument landing system ILS RWY 31 approach during the descent.
According to the pilot, "I had the ILS loaded and was tracking the final approach course and glide slope as I dropped the gear. I added the first notch of flaps and the engine cut out. I pitched for best glide speed as I tried to restart the engine, advanced the power, and switched fuel tanks, none of which worked. We were losing altitude quickly. I retracted the gear and prepared for a water landing. I advised the tower that we were not going to make the runway. I would estimate that we touched down 1-2 miles from the runway."
The pilot held a private pilot certificate with ratings for airplane single engine land and instrument airplane. His most recent Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) third class medical certificate was issued June 10, 2019. The pilot reported 1,502 total hours of flight experience, of which 433 hours were in the accident airplane make and model.
According to FAA records, the airplane was manufactured in 1984 and was powered by a Continental TSIO 550C 310-horsepower engine. Its most recent annual inspection was completed March 1, 2019 at 5,085 total aircraft hours, and the airplane had accrued 20 hours since that date.
The engine had accrued 2,381.7 hours of total time, of which 74.7 hours were since major overhaul.
Examination of the wreckage revealed the airplane was intact, but that the fuselage was deformed aft of the cabin door. Both wings were cut at their roots by recovery personnel. Prior to removal of the wings, each wing was drained of fuel and water. The left wing contained 12.5 gallons of fuel and 10 gallons of water. The right wing contained 17 gallons of fuel and 15 gallons of water.
Flight control continuity was confirmed from the flight controls to all flight control surfaces. Fuel system continuity was confirmed from the roots of each wing to the fuel metering unit. Electrical power was applied to the fuel boost pumps in each wing, and both operated when energized.
The engine spark plugs were removed from the top of each cylinder. Each spark plug displayed normal wear and evidence of exposure to water. The engine was rotated by hand at the propeller; both magneto impulse couplings "snapped," and spark was produced at the ignition leads of the top six spark plugs.
The engine retained for further examination.
At 1656, the weather recorded at MDT included few clouds at 5,000 ft and wind from 010 at 9 knots gusting to 22 knots. Visibility was 10 statute miles, the temperature was 17C, and the dew point was 6C. The altimeter setting was 30.21 inches of mercury.

2019.10.11 19:07 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 6 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-2) at Minnesota Vikings (3-2)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-2) at Minnesota (3-2)
The Eagles will look to take momentum gained from the last two wins into a grueling October 3 game road trip which will start somewhere they had success in the past. The Eagles will make their first trip back to US Bank Stadium since they defeated the Patriots in Super Bowl 52 to give the Eagles their first Lombardi trophy. The Eagles number 1 ranked rush defense will be put to the test this week as they face the 3rd ranked rushing attack in the league led by Dalvin Cook. If they can limit Cook and put the Vikings in long 3rd downs the Eagles DL will need to keep up the pressure on the QB following their 10 sack performance against the New York Jets last week. The Vikings OL made improvement in the off-season to fix the OL woes from previous seasons, but it is still a weak spot on the team. If the Eagles are able to get pressure on Cousins and force him to turn the ball over it could be big in the field position game. Mike Zimmer continues to put out strong defenses in Minnesota and this year is no different. The Vikings defense in ranked in the top 10 in most statistical categories and the Eagles look once again to be without Desean Jackson who miss his 5th game following an explosive debut in week 1. With Desean’s absence look for the Eagles to try to establish the run early with Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders and use a lot of 12 man personnel with Ertz and Goedert. It seems like the Eagles and Vikings having been played on a yearly basis now with Pederson getting the edge over Zimmer 2-1. Zimmer will try to even that up this week in what looks to be a hard fought game. Go Birds!

Eagles 21 - Vikings 23
Kirk Cousins threw for 301 yards and one touchdown, Linval Joseph returned a fumble 64 yards for a score and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Philadelphia Eagles 23-21 Sunday in a rematch of the 2017 season's NFC championship game. It was an ugly game for the Eagles offense as the offensive line again struggled to protect Carson Wentz and get anything going as the defending Super Bowl champions fell to 2-3. The Eagles attempted to rally from a 17-point deficit midway through the third quarter and were in great position to take the lead Eagles following a Roc Thomas dropped a backward pass that was recovered by Nigel Bradham at the Vikings 30 in the fourth quarter. But the Eagles continued to shoot themselves in the foot with penalties and another Wentz sack forcing a 4th and 20 with Doug Pederson electing not to let Jake Elliott try a 58-yarder. The Vikings got the ball back and extended their lead to two scores before the Eagles adding a late Ertz TD before failing to recover and onside kick for the loss.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles
Video The Eagles entered the week 4 matchup against the winningless Jets who were once again without starting QB Sam Darnold. 3rd string QB Luke Falk struggled all day against the vaunted Eagles pass rush.After stuggling to get sacks in their first 4 games the Eagles exploded with 10 sacks, 3 of them from DE Brandon Graham which was a career high. The Eagles also forced 3 turnovers on the day 2 of which were taken for touchdowns.The first was an INT by Nate Gerry who had his second interception of the season. The next was by Orlando Scandrick who was playing his first game for the Eagles and came on a corner blitz ripping the ball from Luke Falk and taking it to the house. The Jets offense couldn't get anything going all day with their only score coming in the fourth quarter on a 19-yard run by Vyncint Smith after a muffed punt. e Eagles became the first team in NFL history to record 10 sacks and score two defensive touchdowns in a single game. Wentz added 189 yards and 1 TD to Zach Ertz and Jordan Howard added 62 yards and a TD on the ground.
Vikings
Video Following a lot of criticism Kirk Cousins got back on track vs the struggling Giants. He threw for 307 yards and 2 TD in a dominating performance.Dalvin Cook added 132 yards on the ground and the defense was dominate bring Daniel Jones back down to earth as the rookie was sacked 4 times and threw an interception while only managing 182 yards and a TD. The win came just a week after the Vikings (3-2) did little in a 16-6 loss to the Chicago Bears and Thielen insisted the team had to stop being one dimensional, relying solely on the run.The Vikings mixed it up with run and pass and came close to a 50/50 split and it paid off for the 28-10 win.

Vikings Passing Attack vs. Eagles Pass Defense
US Bank Stadium was really good to the Eagles not too long ago as the Vikings were gracious hosts when we brought the Lombardi to its rightful home. It was also the site of Choke Fest 2018, which saw the Vikings lose their Week 17 home contest, allowing the Eagles to make the playoffs instead. This year’s version of The Salt Bowl is an important matchup for both teams in the deep NFC between two talented teams. There aren’t many differences between the teams from last year to this year other than offensive philosophy. Mike Zimmer clearly thinks its 1970 and has the offense he desires for his football team after scapegoating John DeFilippo last year. This is a run first, hope-you-don’t-fall-behind-so-you-have-to-rely-on-Kirk offense that is pretty loaded at the skill positions. I don’t necessarily blame Zim for wanting to run more often than they did under Flip, but to neuter the passing game with Diggs and Thielen is borderline criminal. Regardless, the difference that can help the Vikings win is the same one that helped them win last year – passing. Diggs and Thielen are two highly-skilled, versatile, number 1 receivers that the Eagles aren’t very well equipped to handle. Sure, Rasul Douglas has been the best Eagles corner on the season and could hold his own as well as anyone could against these two while losing reps, but the talent available after him is troublesome. Sidney Jones is likely to get the start opposite Douglas this week; if not, it’s Craig James (bitch) job for the second consecutive week. Orlando Scandrick will likely get the start in the slot after going God Mode against the hapless Jets. Basically, this is a strong matchup that favors the Vikings. Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod are both playing at a high level which helps the Eagles since they didn’t have McLeod for this matchup last year. However, it is hard to hide one side of the field; it’s even more difficult when you face the Vikings top two receivers. Additionally, Dalvin Cook and this Vikings screen game is one of the best in the league. The Eagles defense hasn’t been that good at defending the screen. I know Zimmer thinks passing causes autism like vaccines, but the Vikings would be foolish not to take advantage of this matchup like they did last year.
Vikings Offensive Line vs Eagles Pass Rush
What helps a struggling secondary? Pass rush. The Eagles unit has been very slow to start the season and may not reach the levels it did in 2017. It was encouraging to see the defense put up 10 sacks against a unit they should dominate. The Vikings offensive line is still their most significant weakness and the Eagles defensive line can still murder them. Brian O’Neil and Riley Reiff are a decent tackle tandem and are playing better than they did last year. The interior of the Vikings offensive line has been cheeks on the young season. I think the addition of Garrett Bradbury will help the Vikings over the long term as he adjusts to the NFL. In the short term, his lack of size and power is very evident and damaging, especially in pass protection. Pat Elflein still hasn’t developed into anything decent and their other guard doesn’t matter since he isn’t good. This is an Eagles pass rush that is still good but not elite nor as deep as they once were. The slow emergence of Fletcher Cox has been a welcome addition as he works his way back from offseason foot surgery. Philly needs him to be impactful in a hurry. Brandon Graham is fresh off a career day. Josh Sweat is developing nicely. And Daeshon Hall is making good use of his limited snap. This defensive line need to bring it this week. The Vikings want to run and use play action boot off those looks; control the line of scrimmage and put the Vikings offense off script. Then they need to pressure and sack Kirk Cousins. Kirk is a poor QB under pressure and tends to be generous with the ball under some heat. Pressure and limiting the Vikings rushing attack by winning up front will help force the Vikings into situations they don’t want to be in allowing the Eagles the opportunity to create extra plays for their offense. It always starts up front for the Eagles and this week that need is amplified.
Vikings Pass Defense vs Eagles Passing Offense
The Vikings enter the game with one of the better rush defenses in the NFL. That has been a common occurrence for the Vikings in the Zimmer era. This is a defense that is very good in pass defense but not unbeatable. The problem for the Eagles in this contest, and every subsequent contest without DJax, is the limited deep threats outside. Howie Roseman didn’t do enough this offseason to ensure enough speed at the skill positions. Desean Jackson is still the elite deep threat he has always been but are not close to capable of replacing him. Alshon Jeffery is still the reliable receiver he has been but isn’t a vertical receiver. They’ll need him to play against the Vikings the same way he seems to always moss them. Zach Ertz figures to have a key role in this game after accumulating 18 receptions, 203 yards, and a TD in the last two games against this Vikings team (from Kempski) – they’ll need it again. And Dallas Goedert’s presence in the offense alone puts the Eagles in more efficient looks. One player that could step up and actually do something worthy of the undue praise bestowed upon him would be Nelson Agholor. For a guy that does have talent, he doesn’t do anything. He barely outperforms Mack Hollins, who’d rather play special teams. The Vikings secondary is talented but the CBs are underperforming, at least per PFF; the Vikings have no CBs in the PFF Top 50 (among CBs) in coverage grade. Their safeties are still great, but their CBs haven’t played to their usual talent level lately. There is an opportunity here for the Eagles to get their passing game going to a certain degree but is somewhat limited by their own personnel. I’m not arguing to abandon the run, but passing is slightly more favorable this week. Make their CBs improve. Get Barr and Kendricks isolated in coverage where they really struggle. Profit… as much as possible against this unit.
Vikings Defensive Front vs Eagles Offensive Line
This may be the best strength vs strength matchup in the NFL this week as it is in this game! The Vikings have a very good defensive front with (likely) the best EDGE duo in the NFL. Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter are a versatile, powerful, athletic, and dominant duo that gives opposing offenses fits on a weekly basis. While Shemar Stephen and Linval Joseph do a great job anchoring the interior, they aren’t dominant rushers though forces against the run. Still, this is a front that can take over games. As I wrote in the Eagles case, this pass rush can help out the secondary and generally does. The Eagles have one of the top offensive lines in the NFL with the personnel fully capable of neutralizing this Vikings front. We’ve seen how this offense can operate when the OL takes over a game (Green Bay) – it can go a long way this week. Additionally, Kendricks and Barr are two guys that can blitz as effectively as any rusher from time to time. Zimmer is creative with his blitz and pressure looks. In a hostile environment, it’ll be important for the OL to have another cohesive performance. It’s always important to win of front and this particular matchup is porn for the trench warfare community.

2019.09.13 19:22 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 2 Philadelphia Eagles(1-0) at Atlanta Falcons (0-1)

Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) at Atlanta Falcons (0-1)
The Eagles take on the Falcons in week 2, which seems to be a yearly match up as this point as the Eagles have faced the Falcons in each of the last 3 seasons including the playoffs. The Eagles have gotten the better of the exchange in those games going 3-0. The Eagle will look to build off their strong second half from last week where they scored 25 points on their way to victory. The Falcons on the other hand will look to rebound from an embarrassing loss to the Vikings where they gave up 172 yards on the ground and failed to get anything going on offense until garbage time was upon them. The loss shouldn’t be indicative of the Falcons, they are a talented team on both sides of the ball and the Eagles secondary has struggled heavily against Julio Jones who has eclipsed 100 yards receiving in each of the last 3 matchups. The secondary struggled last week and it is only going to get harder for the Eagles as they each Jones, Sanu and Ridley. The Falcons young secondary isn’t going to have it much easier and will definitely get tested more this week than they were against the Vikings, but if Falcon D struggles against the run like last week it could be a long night for Falcon fans. The matchups to watch will be in the trenches where the Vikings gave Matt Ryan fits sacking him 4 times and pressured him all day. The Eagles defensive line is arguably better and the strength of the defense. They will need to be on their game to help the secondary out or it could be a long On the flip side Carson Wentz was gifted tons of time by his OL which allowed him to connect on multiple deep passes. The Falcons will need to find a way to get pressure or Jackson and Jeffrey could be in line for big games in back to back weeks. At the end of the day these two teams have played each other tough over the 3 seasons in some close low scoring games, so let's hope for a good injury free game on Sunday Night football’s rendition of the Bird Bowl. Go Eagles.

Eagles 18 - Falcons 12
A rematch from the 2017 divisional round with backup Nick Foles again for the Eagles. The Falcons moved the ball against the Eagles defense most of the night, but was suffocated each time they enter the redzone, scoring just one touchdown in five trips inside the Philadelphia 20-yard line. They came away with no points three times and settled for a short field goal on another. Nick Foles again played the role of receiver, catching a 15 yard pass from Nelson Agholor and Jay Ajayi added rushed for 2 TDs. Like the divisional round, the game came down to a goal line stand where again the Eagles defense shutdown Julio Jones and Matt Ryan in the endzone to preserve the win for the Eagles..

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles
Video The Eagles started slow against their division rival the Washington Redskins falling down 17-0. But the Eagles high powered offense finally got into gear and Desean Jackson’s homecoming turned into a highlight reel as the speedy veteren receiver caught a pair of 50 yard TD passes and Alshon Jeffrey added a pair of his own to take the lead. And kept it away from the Redskins who failed to get anything going against the Eagles defense in the second half until the game was already out of reach after struggling to stop the Redskins passing attack in the first half.
Falcons
Video The Falcons came into the season as a potential playoff team, but looked nothing of the sort against the Minnesota Vikings to open the season. Matt Ryan played like a shell of the 2016 league MVP beginning his 12th season, unable to find his footing all afternoon in the face of a fierce pass rush that racked up four sacks. He threw 2 picks and struggled to get anything going until the game was already out of reach when he threw for 2 TDs in garbage time. The Falcons defense didn’t look much better as the Vikings ran all over them to the tune of 172 yards and 3 rushing TDs. Cousins only dropped back to throw a mere 10 times completing 8 of them in a dominant Vikings win.

Matchups to Watch
Falcons Offensive Line vs Eagles Pass Rush
This is easily the most important matchup for the Eagles in this contest and one they have a favorable matchup in for the second consecutive week. PFF charted the Eagles as having a pressure rate of 42.2% against Keenum. This is a really good number but one that puzzles me a little bit. Coaches, players, and film experts all agree that the Redskins did a lot of max protect against our pass rush and for good reason. I think it worked well for the Redskins and I find the pressure percentage Philly was credited for to be quite generous. Individual players had their moments against the Skins but I felt the pass rush was ineffective; it’s still early but worth noting since that is how this defense is built to win. The Falcons Offensive line is one the Eagles have had a lot of success against recently and is still struggling to improve. They are looking to start rookie Kaleb McGary at right tackle and rotated him in for some snaps in week 1 with Ty Sambrailo. McGary was a bit of a project and working his way back from offseason injury. A tackle rotation is far from ideal under any circumstances, especially one with Sambrailo. Brandon Graham has a golden opportunity to flex in this contest with a matchup he should dominate. Fletcher Cox has been working in a bit as he works his way back into shape after offseason surgery. He has numerous wins against center Alex Mack throughout this matchup history and will see a journeyman backup guard Jamon Brown as he replaced rookie Chris Lindstrom at right guard. Mack is a good center but Brown is a terrible guard. Timmy Jernigan will also see extended snaps on the inside with the injury to Malik Jackson; the injury is a big loss for the Eagles but one they can overcome with Jernigan’s return and the steady play from Hassan Ridgeway. Left Guard James Carpenter isn’t anything to write home about either which bodes well for Philly. The Falcons have a solid-to-good left tackle in Jake Matthews who is fresh off a butt-kicking at the hands of Everson Griffen. I would expect Jake Matthews to bounce back and play better but there is blood in the water for Philadelphia here to get their pass rush back on track. Derek Barnett is showing a lot of improvement early on. Matthews continuing to struggle would create yet another opportunity for the Eagles pass rush. All of this, combined with the average coaching and play-calling from Dirk Koetter, creates an opportunity to attack the Falcons similar to how the Vikings did. Koetter calls for a lot of long developing pass plays which opens the door for a good pass rush to get home. The pass rush cannot afford to struggle for a second week in a row considering the next key matchup.
Falcons Receivers vs Eagles Secondary
The Eagles have a considerable advantage the trenches in this game but the Falcons have a juicy matchup (again) with the Eagles secondary. Schwartz has done well against the Falcons since he’s been DC with the Eagles, including shutting down their famed 2016 offense. Despite the successes the Eagles had of late, they’ve been carved to shreds by Julio. At least until he gets in the red zone, then he becomes Wholio. I won’t rehash the statline, but it ain’t great! The coaches, as well as the fans, will live with the Julio thrashing if we keep him out of the end zone and win the game. I just wonder how long the Eagles can get by playing with fire against this receiving group. Julio, Ridley, and Sanu are one of the best receiving rooms the Eagles will face this year. The Eagles secondary is fresh off poor matchup against the vaunted Case Keenum and his sad-sacks; they cannot afford the untimely coaching decisions and miscues from the players. We all know the scheme Schwartz will run. The Eagles defense is easy to figure out and remains unchanged. Players like Ronald Darby need to execute their coverage assignments better when they are asked to cover deep when the safety drops down. Coaches like Jim Schwartz should not have the slow Rasul Douglas play off-man coverage against a guy that runs 4.35 without safety help. Last week wasn’t an encouraging performance for the secondary. Fortunately, they know how to game plan against this Falcons squad and have had a lot of success in doing so. Any improvements from the secondary will go a long way to helping the Eagles win but it is not a unit that will carry them to victory. It can help them lose, which it almost did. This isn’t an offense you want to spot a lead.
Falcons Defensive Line vs Eagles Offensive Line
The Eagles have very favorable matchups in the trenches in this game as the Falcons don’t have a good defensive line outside of the great Grady Jarrett. He’s a treat to watch and one of the best interior defensive lineman in football. Jarrett is where the talent starts and unfortunately ends for Atlanta. Vic Beasley isn’t much of defender. Takk McKinley flashes some pass rush upside but is weak against the run. This is a unit that was mauled by the Vikings in the ground game. I don’t think the Vikings offensive line is suddenly good, but the favorable game script allowed them to run all over Atlanta. The Eagles have a much better Offensive Line with Kelce, Brooks, and Lane as All-Pro talents on the right side. Isaac Seumalo had a good and promising start at Left Guard with Jason Peters returning to form protecting the blindside. When healthy, this is a group with four All-Pro caliber players. This unit kept Wentz very clean and opened up holes in the ground game Hellen Keller could find. The Eagles haven’t had a lot of success offensively with the Falcons speed on defense but this defensive line is weaker for them than it has been. On the road, controlling the line of scrimmage will help keep the offense on schedule. The Falcons have struggled against running backs in the Dan Quinn era so dominating up front will go a long way in winning this contest.
Coaching Battle
There is a chance the Falcons Head Coach could be on the hot seat with another down season despite the talent on the roster. This is compounded by the major coaching changes they made heading into 2019. Dirk Koetter is a decent offensive coordinator and hasn’t proven to be much more than that in recent years. Still, this is a team, despite its flaws up front, that has a lot of talent. You have to love the Eagles coaches’ ability to consistently adapt in game circumstances to help the team win; they need to be better in this regard early in games this year. We all know the stat: the Eagles offense was among the league worst in 1st quarter scoring in 2018. Last Sunday saw a return of that. The 2019 is still very young to have definitive takes, but the coaching needs to be better early in games. You can’t consistently chase teams and expect to have success. The coaches do need time to figure out what works with the depth of weapons on the team so early bumps aren’t shocking. But this is a Falcons coaching staff that has held the Eagles offense in check since Quinn has been head coach and has weapons to make Philly pay a more punishing price than the Skins delivered. I mention this for all of the above reasons – not to try and panic. Doug is a great coach and has proven to rally the team. They just need to be more consistent. The same goes for Jim Schwartz. The defense is unchanged but some of the same problems remain; it’s up to the coaches to put the players in more advantageous situations to succeed.

2019.07.28 19:37 The_DMcI123 I made a list of every crime committed in The Office and it only took seven months

Below I’ve listed every law that was broken in The Office (from destruction of property and battery to homicide and kidnapping) whether legal action was taken or not, as well as ideas that people had that were illegal; I’m not a legal expert, I just have a lot of much free time (I labeled the episodes the same way that Netflix does.)

2018.12.29 00:10 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 17 - Philadelphia Eagles(8-7) at Washington Redskins (7-8)

Philadelphia Eagles (8-7) at Washington Redskins (7-8)
It looks as if the ghost of Super Bowl MVP past has returned once more to try to save the Eagles season. Foles looked comfortable out there throwing 35-49 for 471 yards and 4 TDs as the Eagles kept their playoff hopes alive against the playoff bound Houston Texans. The Eagles will need to take care of business as they take on the division rival Redskins who have been hobbled since losing Alex Smith for the season in week 12. The Redskins might be beat up, but they still have a lot of talent especially on the defensive side of the ball. Foles will need to keep the Eagles offense rolling and spread ball around to keep the Redskins defense off balance. If the Eagles offense can put up the points the Eagles defense should be able to shut down the Redskins on offense where they have suffered a majority of their injuries and will be starting journeyman QB Josh Johnson on Sunday. The Eagles will need some help though if they want to make it into the playoffs to defend their title. That help needs to come from the Chicago Bears who are taking on the Minnesota Vikings. If the Bears win and the Eagles take care of their own business, the Eagles will sneak in as a 6th seed. Let’s hope BDN has some magic left in that old slong of his. Go Birds!

Eagles 28 - Redskins 13
Eagles took on the division rival Redskins who may be one of the only teams with more key injuries than the Eagles and it just got worse for Washington with backup Colt McCoy having to leave the game with a broken fibula after the first quarter. Journeyman and former Eagles Mark Sanchez was forced into action just two weeks after joining the team. With the limited off the Redskins struggled to get anything going on offense outside of a long 90 yards AP TD run in the 2nd quarter. On the other side of the ball the Redskins offense struggled to stop the Eagles who seemed to move the ball with ease. The Eagles offense looked in rhythm for the first time this season moving the ball both through the air and on the ground and getting multiple people involved. Carson Wentz threw for 306 yards 2 TDs and an INT and the Eagles moved the ball on the ground with 134 yards on 29 carries from their running backs in a 28-13 win.

Eagles 30 - Redskins 17
Carson Wentz was 26-29 for 307 yards and two touchdowns as the second-year quarterback guided the Philadelphia Eagles to a 30-17 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday in a sloppy, mistake-filled season opener between the NFC East rivals. Wentz frustrated the Redskins defenders all day with his ability to avoid sacks and extend plays including a 56 TD pass to Nelson Agholor to put the Eagles on the board first. The Eagles struggled to run the ball throughout the game averaging just 2.4 yards per carry. However, they were able to pull out a win with Wentz carrying the offense and an impressive performance by the defense where they caused 3 turnovers (2 FF, 1 INT) and 4 sacks. It wasn't pretty, but it was a hard fought division game that saw the Eagles come out on top.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video – The Eagles looked to keep their season alive and Super Bowl MVP came out to play as Foles threw for a franchise record 471 yards and 4 TDs on 35-49 passing hitting 10 receivers in the process. The Eagles lost the lead late and on the final drive Nick Foles ran back onto the field after a hard shot knocked him out for a play and the crowd roared, seemingly knowing he was about to do it again. Foles did do it again as he got the Eagles into field goal range. Jake Elliott kicked a 35-yard field goal as time expired and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Houston Texans 32-30 Sunday to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Washington - Video – The Redskins were eliminated from playoff contention last week as they couldn’t hold off Blaine Gabbert who came off the bench for the third time this season, Gabbert threw for 101 yards after the Redskins knocked Mariota out of the game late in the first half with a stinger. Gabbert hit Taywan Taylor for 35 yards to jump-start the winning drive, Derrick Henry ran four times for 33 yards, his last an 18-yarder to the 2. Gabbert then hit Pruitt at the back of the end zone. For the Redskins Josh Johnson looked rusty after coming off his couch 2 weeks ago. He threw for 153 yards 1 TD and 2 INTs on 13/23 passing.

PFF Stat to Know
Josh Norman’s Decline
Venture a guess as to how many Eagles DBs with notable snaps have allowed a lower passer rating than Josh Norman, in 2018. Got that number in mind? Add a few. The number is SEVEN. Cre’Von LeBlanc has allowed a lower passer rating than Norman. Ok, now, considering the title of this section, guess what that number was in 2017. Think hard. That number is....also SEVEN. The difference? In 2018, the Landoverians only fielded 2 DBs with lower passer ratings allowed than Norman (both Safeties, Swearinger now gone). In 2017? The Landover team had SIX DBs that posted better passer ratings (3 CBs). You have to go back to the 2016 season and earlier to find dominant Norman. At that point, only one DB posted a better passer rating (the Eagles’ McLeod).
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Offensive Line vs. Redskins Defensive Line
Just like in the previous match up, this battle will go a long way to helping the Eagles win in the air and on the ground. This is especially true with the less mobile Foles. The Eagles offensive line has been among the leagues very best the last 3-4 weeks but has been good all year. The recent performance has been more about this group rounding into last years form. The Redskins defensive front is still very talented and has given the Eagles plenty of fits over the years even if their first meeting was a clear win for the Eagles. Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith are a very good edge pairing; if Peters is unable to go or finish out this contest, Smith will have a very nice match up against the struggling Big V. John Allen and Da'ron Payne are two young but very talented IDL for the Skins and match up well against Seumalo and Wisniewski. Wis has done a solid job for the Eagles in Seumalo's absence but it would be nice to get the latter back into the lineup. Contrary to potential popular opinion, Seumalo does appear to be the better option at LG as the team moves forward. He offers more versatility in the run game and has been steadily improving as a pass blocker as well. One aspect of the OL improvements of late has been the offensive philosophy to speed up the time to throw. This hasn't been a new development for the Eagles since this started against the Cowboys in Dallas, but it has also helped alleviate the pressure the OL was facing. The Redskins run defense has had it's issues of late but the run game for the Eagles isn't anything to write home about. "Lead back" Josh Adams has a sizzling sub 2.0 yards per carry on 26 carries the last 2 weeks as he is showing he's the more limited back he really is. The Eagles should look to lean on the quick passing game as an extension of the run game like last week especially given the suspect coverage guys for the Redskins and the fact the Darren Sproles is in fact still useful. It all starts up front for both teams as controlling the line of scrimmage generally leads to positive results.
Eagles Defensive Line vs. Redskins Offensive Line
This was the definitive match up for the Eagles in their first meeting as the secondary was still struggling to find its footing. As they should have, the DL dominated the decimated Redskins OL that is still decimated. Long, Cox, Bennett, Graham, and Jernigan should all have a good day at the office with this struggling unit. Unfortunately for the Skins, they are also down to their 4th (or 5th?) option at QB this season in Josh Johnson. It's admirable that Johnson has been able to function at all in that offense which is a testament to his competitive nature. One thing he does offer that can help him in this matchup is added mobility. Regardless, the Skins offensive line is one more injury away from throwing a toaster into block and they have a bad passer to account for with even more lackluster weapons. There is no excuse for the Eagles defensive line to get after Johnson in this contest and control Adrian Peterson. It'll require consistent and disciplined play from the defense to keep the Redskins offense from being effective.
Eagles Secondary vs Competence
The Redskins offense is a hot pile of garbage and injury is a major reason why. Even when healthy the receiving options were rather limited for Alex Smith. Since week 1, the Redskins have been struggling mightily to do anything outside of leaning on Adrian Peterson. The Eagles secondary is still a much banged up unit but has been playing much better football of late - especially since Maddox returned. The last couple of weeks have seen steady improvement from Rasul Douglas, elevated play from rookie Avonte Maddox, and a surprising contribution from Leblanc. Malcolm Jenkins is still excellent and Corey Graham hasn't cost the Eagles a game recently so things are looking better. This is still a shaky secondary but it's been better coached and playing better of late. Their opponent is among the league worst this season passing efficiency and there should be no reason for that to change this week. It's the Eagles vs the Redskins so anything can happen, but a performance worse than their first match up would be disheartening for the Eagles and threaten their playoff hopes.
Eagles Pass Offense vs Redskins Pass Defense
Since week 14 the Eagles have been using 12 personnel more often than they did earlier this season and the results don't surprise: they are better offensively. For some reason, the coaching staff was hesitant in getting the team to operate in that grouping for much of the year until the season was on the brink. The Eagles have scored 30 points in each of the last two games thanks in large part to better coaching. The defense has also turned the ball over and given the Eagles more drives which helps the offense score more points. This match up presents another opportunity for 12 personnel to flourish given the recent release of DJ Swearinger. Zach Ertz already owns the Skins and will have an opportunity to feast even more. Golden Tate had his best performance as an Eagles in this first match up between these two teams and could be in line for some opportunities again. The Skins passing defense has been good of late and will present challenges for the outside receivers. The Eagles can't allow themselves to be put in less than favorable down and distance situations. Their LBs and safeties can be exposed in coverage so look for the Eagles to attack the middle of the defense through the air.

2018.12.01 03:59 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 13 - Philadelphia Eagles(5-6) vs Washington Redskins(6-5)

Washington Redskins (6-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (5-6)
The Eagles are coming off a much needed win vs. the division rival Giants giving them the series sweep. The Eagles need another win this week against another division rival as the the Redskins come to town. The game will be a matchup between two teams who have struggled with injuries this season, but the Eagles are looking to get back Darren Sproles, Sidney Jones and Rasual Douglas this week against which should be a much needed welcome. For the Redskins Colt McCoy will look to make his second start since Alex Smith went down for the season with a broken leg. McCoy will look to rebound from his first start where he threw 3 INTs in a loss to the Cowboys. On the other side of the ball the Redskins defense which started out so dominant has been porous of late through the air of late giving up over 1500 yards in their last 5 games. The Eagles will look to try to shake off their first quarter struggles and get going against Redskins by hopefully getting some early turnovers against a turnover prone McCoy and get the offense going early with Josh Adams and Sproles on the ground. If the Eagles get the ground game going it could be a long day for the Redskins as it will set up the play action and RPOs for Wentz opening it up through the air. As always with a NFCE matchup in primetime I am sure we can expect a sloppy game with a lot of penalties. Go Birds!

Eagles 30 - Redskins 17
The Eagles completed a season sweep of the Redskins on Monday Night Football in a game with a slew of penalties on the Eagles which appeared to be in retaliation to a petition against Pete Morelli which received over 100,000 signatures. Carson Wentz threw for 4 TD and 268 yards and ran for 68 more as he played Houdini most of the night with the Redskins pass rush. Wentz spread the TDs around to 4 different receivers, including a 64 bomb to Mack Hollins for the rookie wideout's first TD of his career. With the win the Eagles took a commanding two game lead over the NFC East and have the best record in the league at 6-1. The win came at a cost however as the Eagles lost both starting MLB Jordan Hicks for the season with a torn achilles and Jason Peters with a torn MCL and ACL for the season. Despite losing both players early, the Eagles dominated Washington most of the game winning convincingly 34-24 as the Eagles defense got to Cousins 4 times including forcing an a pick in the 4th quarter.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video – The Eagles first quarter woes continued against the division rival Giants as the Eagles were again shutout in the first quarter while the Giants moved the ball with ease scoring 9 in the quarter. The Eagles finally got on the board with 5:22 left in the 2nd and were able to add a Zach Ertz touchdown in the final two minutes and added a 2 point conversion to make it 19-11 heading into halftime. The second half was all Eagles as they shutdown a Giants offense that had their way with them in the first half. The Eagles added a Josh Adams TD run and another 2 point conversion to take their first lead of the game. The Giants answered with a FG to pull it back to even with 5:49 left to play in the game, before Jake Elliott broke Giants' fans hearts again with a go-ahead FG with 22 seconds left to go in the game.
Washington - Video - The Washington offense was slow to get going with Colt McCoy at the helm as the Redskins struggled against the division rival Cowboys on Thanksgiving. The Redskins defense couldn't do anything to stop Amari Cooper who had 180 yards and 2 TDs nor could they stop Zeke Elliot who had 121 yards and a TD as well. Colt McCoy struggled in his first start in 4 years throwing 3 INTs offsetting his 2 TD passes. The Redskins fell to the Cowboys 31-23.

Matchups to Watch
Eagles Offensive Line vs. Redskins Defensive Front
If the Eagles are going to save their season they are going need to win upfront and the Redskins provide a significant challenge for the Eagles OL after one of their best performances this season. The Redskins defense is good but flawed however their defensive front is among the best in football. Eagles fans should know this better than anyone else given the struggles the team has had against the Skins in recent years despite sweeping the season series last year. Ryan Kerrigan is the star on the Skins defensive front and has been nothing short of a pain for the Eagles in his career. Opposite him is Preston Smith who is a solid edge player in his own right. The Skins are also stout on the IDL with Matt Ioannidis, Jonathan Allen and rookie Daron Payne causing a ton of disruption. The Skins also like to mix in rookie Tim Settle who has been effective early in his career. The DL is a well-coached group led by Jim Tomsula and has been an issue for offensive lines throughout the season. For most of the season the Skins were exceptional against the run but have had some issues of late. But the real issue for the Eagles is this groups ability to cause issue in the passing game. Each of these guys can win their 1v1 matchups and the Skins defensive staff does a good job putting them in advantageous situations to succeed. The Eagles offensive line is still a good unit even if it isn’t performing at the elite level it did last year. This Skins defensive front gave the Eagles issues then and it is better now. Controlling the LOS always gives a team an advantage and this would be no different for the Eagles in this contest.
Eagles Defensive Line vs. Redskins Offensive Line
When fully healthy, the Redskins offensive line is among the most talented and best coached groups in football. Like their DL, the Skins OL has given the Eagles fits in the past given their immense talent and multiplicity. The Eagles were able to cause a lot of disruption against this unit last year but every bit of that was hard earned. In the first matchup between these two teams this year, the Redskins are already incredibly banged up giving the Eagles a considerable advantage despite their own health issues. Trent Williams is a HOF caliber OT for the Skins but has been banged up all season long with hand and rib issues. There is a chance he might not go and even if he does, he may not make it through the game. Morgan Moses is another good tackle for the Skins and has dealt with some nagging injuries on the year. The Skins do have Ty Nsekhe as a backup swing tackle and he is probably the best in that role in the NFL; he can start at tackle on many teams in the NFL. After that the Skins IOL is a mess. Stud OG Brandon Scherff and Shawn Lauvao landed on IR together and the IOL of the Redskins hasn’t been the same. This is a matchup where Cox should thrive and while also giving Timmy Jernigan an opportunity to welcome himself back into the line up in a big way. Colt McCoy is a quality back up QB but he is a back up QB for a reason. The Eagles have a bad and banged up secondary with a ripe opportunity for the talent on their DL to steal the show. It’ll be imperative for the Eagles defense to dominate up front and prevent Peterson and Chris Thompson from making big impacts forcing Colt McCoy into low percentage situations. McCoy is very turnover prone; while the Eagles have been very bad at forcing turnovers this season they are given the gift of opportunity in this one that they cannot let slip past them.
Redskins Passing Attack vs the Eagles Pass Offense
Alex Smith is a better QB than Colt McCoy but even before the injury Alex Smith wasn’t playing near the level he did in 2017. This isn’t a surprise since it was always likely to be an aberration given his career as an average starting QB. The weapons the Skins have in the passing game aren’t super inspiring either and are even more stressed without Paul Richardson in the lineup. However, Jay Gruden didn’t hold the offense back last week against Dallas and really amplified the aggressiveness of the offense in general. It would be reasonable for them to do it again this week given the banged-up state of the Eagles secondary. Josh Doctson has been a very underwhelming 1st round selection at receiver and the remaining cast of characters outside are all better suited for the slot. The Redskins can do one of two things to possibly succeed in this matchup: spread the Eagles out with 11 personnel and test the turnstiles outside or line up in 12 personnel and stress the Eagles LBs without Jordan Hicks. Neither is ideal for the Eagles considering Nigel Bradham is also hurt now. Jordan Reed is a quality TE despite not being what he once was due to all the injuries that have plagued his career and Vernon Davis is still good despite his age. Both players provide a big mismatch for the Eagles as the Skins are also effective out of 12 personnel. When you add in Chris Thompson, who should be returning to the lineup, the matchup only gets trickier. The Eagles don’t have the personnel to be able to do more than the basics in coverage and really need their DL to step up and force mistakes from the Skins offense. The Eagles benefit from a limited passer in Colt McCoy but he also benefits from the Eagles horrific injury situation. Either way, Gruden has enough options in the passing game to take advantage of the Eagles. It’ll be up to this ragtag cast of characters to find a way to win their battles.
Eagles Offensive Game Plan vs Redskins Defensive Game Plan
This one is general and for good reason: The Eagles offense has been pretty poor overall this season. For whatever reason, they start slow and can’t score – basically me in college. They are also more effective out of 12 personnel but don’t use it enough to really help the offense. Lastly, since the trade deadline, they have done a poor job integrating Golden Tate into the lineup. It hasn’t been one thing that has held up the Eagles offense this season which makes correcting the issues even more difficult. The offense doesn’t feature Alshon Jeffery as much as it did prior to trading for Tate; some people attribute that more to Wentz relying on Ertz but that is a mistake. Rather than work Tate into the offense and allow him to be an option for Wentz, they appear to script situations for Tate to get the ball or be a diversion neutering the offense and his overall playmaking ability. Wentz throwing to Ertz often is so far and away not the problem with the offense given that Wentz isn’t simply dinking and dunking to the best receiving option on the roster. The offense is struggling mightily to be effective out of 11 personnel. Furthermore, the Eagles RB situation has been a mess this year given injury and regression from Corey Clement. The Eagles have appeared to find a hot hand in Josh Adams who might just be the greatest RB to ever play in the Linc. While I am being sarcastic, he is a solid runner with better vision than any back currently healthy on the roster with enough speed to make big runs happen in the open field. The Eagles don’t need to make a high investment at RB but they need to be able to find guys that are patient runners that can find the spaces their great OL opens. That’s Adams. If they can find a compliment in Corey Clement as a rotational back as a runner and receiver that would be great too. And if Sproles can return and be useful that would only help as well. The point is the Eagles aren’t short on weapons and OL talent so their offensive inability this year is extremely infuriating. The Skins defense prevents some juicy matchups for the Eagles. Norman is still a good CB but he can be beat 1v1. Their other outside CB and slot CBs have been poor. Mason Foster is a liability against the run and pass. While the Skins have a very good defensive front and pass rush, they can be burned through the air since they only have one good Safety in Swearinger (Haha is overrated). The Eagles have all the talent and coaching to take advantage of this but haven’t been able to do it consistently this year. They need to start helping their defense out more while putting pressure on Colt McCoy to keep up. The coaching staff needs to put the players in positions to succeed more consistently and players flat out need to play better since they have failed the team despite good coaching.

2018.09.28 15:04 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 4 - Philadelphia Eagles(2-1) at Tennessee Titans(2-1)

Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) at Tennessee Titans (2-1)
The Eagles bounced back against their former OC Frank Reich, Andrew Luck and Colts as they squeaked out a 20-16 win. Carson Wentz was a little rusty his his first start since week 14 of last season, but showed why he was an MVP candidate last season before his injury leading a 4th quarter game winning drive. This week he will face a tough test as they travel to Nashville to take on Marcus Mariota the Tennessee Titans. The Titans are 2-1 this season under new coach Mike Vrabel and are coming off a big win in Jacksonville, where they won a defensive battle 9-6. The Titans OL will be put to the test again this week to protect a still beat up Mariota after surrendering 3 sacks to the Jaguars, they will face a Philadelphia Eagles line that is hungry and gets to the QB. The Eagles also own the top rushing defense again giving up just 61.7 yards per game. Fletcher Cox has wreaked havoc this season averaging a sack per game and blowing up run plays as PFF's top graded interior defensive linemen. However, Mariota has the speed and agility to break contain and pick up yards in chunks as he is just 21 yards away from gaining 1000 rushing yards for his career. On the otherside, the OL for the Eagles will have to be better this week protecting the QB especially facing a talented pass rusher in Jurrell Casey who is thriving in Mike Vrabel's defense. The Eagles offense should get a boost this week as Alshon Jeffery looks to start his first game this season after missing the first three after having surgery on his shoulder following the season. Eagles RB Jay Ajayi will also return to the fold this week after missing last week with a back injury. The running game did will in Ajayi's absence, but the WRs have been absent this season with the exception of Nelson Agholor, so getting Alshon back will be huge for the Eagles. On defense, the Eagles have to stop Corey Davis who has been the Titans only receiver this season leading the team in yards and receptions as second in yards on that list is Dane Cruikshank a safety who caught a fake punt. If the Eagles can shutdown Davis they should bring the Titans offense to a stall with their top ranked run defense. The game has all the makings of a defensive showdown, so we should probably expect a shootout, but time will tell.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video – Eagles QB Carson Wentz returned to the lineup for the first time since suffering a torn ACL in week 14 last season. Wentz had to shake off some rust, but showed he still had quite a bit of wiggle let him in him moving around in the pocket and throwing for 255 yards and 1 TD. Wentz found rookie Dallas Goedert for the rookies first TD, but Indianapolis answered with a Ryan Grant TD following a bad PI penalty by Jalen Mills trying to cover TY Hilton. After the game was tied at 7 the two teams traded FGs with the Colts taking a 3 point lead 16-13 at the beginning of the 4th. Carson Wentz found some magic in his pocket and led the Eagles on a scoring drive that resulted in a Smallwood rushing TD to take the lead 20-16. The Colts worked their way down the field, but Derek Barnett chased down Luck for a 4th down sack in the red zone to seal the game for the Eagles.
Titans - Video – It was slow start on both sides in Jacksonville and it never really picked up. Blaine Gabbert got the start for the banged up Mariota, but was forced to leave the game after taking a shot to the head which forced Mariota into action. Mariota gave the Titans offense a slight boost, but the game still ended up going into halftime tied at 3-3. The Titans took the lead after with a scoring drive aiding by a defensive PI call that culminated into a Ryan Succup field goal. On the other side, Bortles struggled throughout the day, give some credit to the Titans defense, but Bortles was missing simple passes left and right and couldn't find his accuracy after throwing for 400 the previous week against the Patriots. Still they were able to string together some first downs and Lambo was able to tie the game at 6. The Titans were able to move the ball an kill some clock before adding one more Succup field to take the lead and hold on at 9-6.

Matchups to Watch
Eagles Passing Offense vs. Titans Pass Defense
A lot has been amiss with the Eagles offense so far this season due to injuries carrying over into this year in addition to the new injuries mounting for the team. Sunday will be Wentz's second start of the season since he returned from ACL and LCL surgery and will look to build on a solid but imperfect Colts performance. It shouldn't take long for Wentz to return to MVP form considering his pedigree and how good the offensive coaching staff is. However, the Eagles still have a lot of banged up weapons on offense that are limiting the offensive performance. Alshon Jeffery has been cleared for contact but his status for Sunday isn't totally clear (as of this post). Agholor looks to be taking another step up in his young career. But those are the only two Eagles receivers that are healthy with any semblance of ability right now. Zach Ertz is still a top 3 NFL TE and Dallas Goedert has a lot of promise to develop into a top flight TE in his own right, but the lack of weapons outside at the moment has put a vice grip on the offense. Due to injury, the Eagles receiving core has looked like the 2016 version rather than the 2017 version on this young season. Alshon Jeffery's return will be a big boost to a struggling offense. The Titans enter this game with a young and ascending defense that has been well-coached so far in this young season. Kevin Byard is an elite, ball-hawking safety that Wentz will need to be mindful of. Adoree Jackson is an athletic and ascending corner. They even have Malcolm Butler, whose presence alone would have changed Super Bowl 52 history if you believe the delusion from Pats fans. Dean Pees (his pants) and Vrabel bring an aggressive and physical defensive front that brings a lot of fun and exotic blitzes that look similar to the Jim Johnson Eagles defenses. Twists and stunts are difficult for any offensive line to deal with - even an elite one like the Eagles. The offensive line will need to keep Wentz clean; Wentz will also need to find his open receivers quicker than he did last week and take the safer throws to move the sticks. Jurrell Casey is a great defensive tackle similar to Cox and Harold Landry has been a welcomed addition on the EDGE. The Titans have struggled with the run so far on the early season but Eagles will need to improve through the air in order to keep the pressure off their own defense and force a struggling Titans offense into doing more than shooting blanks.
Eagles Defensive Line vs. Titans Offensive Line
As previously mentioned and as the stats show the Titans offense has been struggling mightily to start the season. There are a lot of reasons for it: scheme change, injuries, tough matchups, etc. Their offensive line is set to return RT Jack Conklin this week to go along with LT Taylor Lewan, who returned from injury himself last week. Together they are as good a pair of tackles that you'll find in the NFL. They'll need both to deal with the numerous pass rushers the Eagles have on the roster. Where the Titans have really struggled on the early part of the season is along the interior of the offensive line that was pretty solid the previous couple of seasons. That should be music to Fletcher Cox's ears since he has been playing at a DPOY pace to start the season. It's hard to get a read on what the Titans offense will ultimately look like given the tumultuous start to the season, but it has been a struggle and their interior OL hasn't stepped up. Mariota has been dealing with yet another injury and how healthy he is right now isn't completely known. The Titans have had to rely on their ineffective run game a lot on the early season and if they have to again it plays into the Eagles favor. They've lacked a lot of explosive plays on the early season similar to the Eagles which presents the defense with an opportunity to control the game. The Eagles home/road splits on defense (especially against the pass) aren't encouraging for this contest but the overall match up is. If the defensive line can continue to bring the heat on a dinged up Mariota, it could go a long way to winning this game.
Eagles Pass Defense vs Titans Pass Offense
This key battle aligns with the previous one. The Titans pass offense has been a complete dumpster fire this season for many reasons. Truthfully, this battle should be called "Marcus Mariota vs Success" but I still believe in the Hawaiian. With the release of Rishard Matthews, the Titans receiving group is thin on proven talent and has been underachieving quite a bit so far. Corey Davis was the highly touted rookie last year and has flashed in spurts. His inconsistencies have stemmed from injuries and an ineffective offense overall. He's still a very talented player and we have seen the Eagles secondary stink out loud against lesser receivers than Davis - especially on the road. Taywan Taylor is another young receiver that has struggled to see the field for the Titans. Tajae Sharp is only capable of beating non-players. Unfortunately for the Titans, Delanie Walker is done for the season and really puts a huge dent in the Titans plans. Hicks and Bradham back and healthy for the Eagles is a huge boost for the pass defense considering the lack of proven options for the Titans at TE. One area they could look to exploit the Eagles is the use of Dion Lewis in the passing game. Hicks and Bradham are one of the best LB groupings in the NFL and are excellent in coverage; but the Eagles do occasionally struggle with running backs in the passing game. We haven't really seen Lewis used in this fashion this year but the Titans have basically had a one-armed Mariota and Glaine Babbert at QB. The Titans should also try to attack the middle of the field with the recent news that safety Rodney McLeod will miss the rest of the season. The Eagles have a solid option in Corey Graham to replace him but McLeod is a big loss as he is a big upgrade to Graham and prevents the Eagles from using one of their popular coverage packages. The lack of proven options in the passing game and the rash of injuries to the Titans offense should play into the Eagles favor, especially against the pass. Mariota has struggled on the season but can still turn it around at any moment. Depending on Mariota's status, they should really look to lean on him more through the air at least on early downs. Their success rate on first down runs has been poor and they run too much overall. A lot of that has probably been out of necessity but they need to adapt in order to boost their current putrid output. While the Eagles defense is very talented and well-coached, they have been known to bite the cheese and give up big plays. The Eagles need to pounce on this unit while they are still struggling as a lot of its own offense works its way back from injury. Pressure and hit Mariota. Do not give up the big play.

2018.09.05 16:45 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 1 - Atlanta Falcons (0-0) at Philadelphia Eagles(0-0)

Atlanta Falcons (0-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-0)
The Eagles open their first season as defending Super Bowl Champion against a team they faced on the road to their Super Bowl win. The Falcons gave the Eagles one of their toughest tests and took them down to the wire in the Eagles 15-10 win. The Eagles will once again be turning to their backup QB Nick Foles to lead them to victory as Carson Wentz continues to rehab his injured knee. Foles will look to find some of the magic that made him a Super Bowl MVP, a he struggled in his last game against the Falcons and has struggled throughout his preseason appearances this year. Foles will get some help as future Hall of Famer Jason Peters will return to watch his blindside and Swiss Army Knife Darren Sproles returns to do everything. The offense will still have a tough task, the Falcons have a fast defense that flies to the football and gets to the quarterback. On the other side of the football, the Eagles will also be shorthanded at LB where Nigel Bradham is serving his 1 game suspension for punching a cabana boy two years ago, however they do get Jordan Hicks back from a torn achilles that forced him to miss most of last season. The Eagles will also be swapping out some new faces for key contributors last including Michael Bennett for Vinny Curry, Sidney Jones for Patrick Robinson and Haloti Ngata for Beau Allen. The defense will be up to a tough task facing one of the best QBs in the league in Matt Ryan who has a plethora of weapons at his disposal including one of, if not the best receiving corps that includes Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and rookie first round pick Calvin Ridley. Even if the Eagles are put to the challenge of shutting down a dangerous Falcons passing attack, they will also need to deal with the 1 - 2 punch of Devonta Freemen and Tevin Coleman. NFL fans should be in for a treat because this has all the makings of a tough fought slugfest on both sides of the ball to kick off the season with Thursday Night Football.

General
Referee: John Hussey
Since 2016, Philadelphia has produced a 15-3 home record (including playoffs), which marks the best home winning percentage (.833) in the NFL in that span.
The Eagles have won 11 of their last 12 home games dating back to Week 16 of 2016. Philadelphia finished the 2017 season with a 9-1 record at Lincoln Financial Field.
In 2017, the Eagles outscored their opponents, 282-124 (+158), over 10 regular-season and postseason games at Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia’s 229 points scored at home during the regular season marked the 4th-highest single-season mark in team history and the Eagles’ most since the 2014 campaign (franchise-record 261).
Philadelphia is aiming to win its third consecutive season opener (9/11/16: W, 29-10 vs. Cle.; 9/10/17: W, 30-17 at Was.), which would tie for the 3rd- longest streak in franchise history (1st: 6 from 1942-47; 2nd: 4 from 2011-14).
Doug Pederson can become just the fourth head coach in Eagles history to win three straight opening day games, joining Rich Kotite(3, 1991-93), Dick Vermeil (3, 1979-81) and Greasy Neale (6, 1942-47).
Philadelphia has won each of its last two home openers (9/11/16: W, 29-10 vs. Cle.; 9/24/17: W, 27-24 vs. NYG) and can tie for the 2nd-longest streak in team history with a win on Thursday night (1st: 5 from 1945-49). Pederson can join Joe Kuharich (4, 1964-67) as the only Eagles head coaches to win their first three home openers with the team.
Doug Pederson became the eighth head coach in NFL history to win the Super Bowl in their first two seasons as a head coach (first since Mike Tomlin in 2008).
Pederson also became the seventh head coach in NFL history to win the Super Bowl in his first playoff run as a head coach (first since Brian Billick in 2000).
Pederson became just the fourth head coach in NFL history to win the Super Bowl following a sub-.500 record the previous season, joining Bill Belichick (2001 Patriots), Dick Vermeil (1999 Rams) and Bill Walsh (1981 49ers).

Matchups to Watch
Nick Foles vs Falcons Pass Defense
All eyes should be on the Eagles Week 1 starter for the opener. Coming off an excellent playoff run culminating in a Super Bowl MVP award, Nick Foles takes the helm as Carson Wentz continues his rehab. What Foles has shown in his career are incredible highs and incredible lows; this includes a relatively shaky preseason where Doug Pederson went the disappointed father route when discussing Foles poor play against the Browns a couple of weeks ago. It's important not to take too much away from the preseason since the coaching staff isn't game-planning extensively like they will for this matchup while also missing several offensive starters. Entering week 1 the Eagles will still be down one starter in Alshon Jeffery and another offensive contributor in Mack Hollins. Even with the benefit of preparation, the Falcons are one of the best teams in the NFL and tend to suffocate opponents against the pass. The Seattle-style defense is flush with high-end athletes that prevent a lot of big plays. Doug Pederson is 2-0 vs the Falcons as the Eagles Head Coach and in those 2 games the Eagles have 0 passing TDs. Foles was pretty decent against the Falcons in the playoffs and I think needs to be more consistently good in this one to keep the offense on schedule. This will be a a difficult task without Jeffery and some new pieces to work into the offense. Even with the capable backs the Eagles possess, they only averaged 3 yards per carry against the Falcons in the playoffs on 32 carries. In order for the offenses to be more efficient the passing game needs be good early and often. They cannot afford to put themselves in situations where they have to chase the Falcons through the air.
Eagles Secondary vs. Falcons Passing Attack
The Falcons have a plethora of weapons to contend with on the offensive side of the ball that can make life difficult for the Eagles defense. Everyone knows Julio Jones is a monster and has shredded the Eagles secondary in his last 3 games against Philly. Julio probably should perform this way; he is an elite talent and the Eagles haven't had a strong secondary. What has helped the Eagles in the last two outings against the Falcons is limiting the damage done by the supporting cast. Sanu is a good number 2 receiver and a reliable passing option to keep the offense on schedule. The addition of first round rookie Calvin Ridley can also help the offense be more explosive than it was in 2017. There will be an adjustment for Ridley to the pro game but he is already a very good route runner with good speed that is an upgrade over what they had previously. Austin Hooper is a reliable, if unexciting tight end option as well and helps make the offense efficient much like Sanu. Lastly, Freeman and Coleman are one of the best RB pairings in football and also excellent in the passing game. While it'll be important for the Eagles stingy run defense to continue to control the line of scrimmage, the Falcons offense has a number of very good weapons for Matt Ryan to use in the passing game. It'll be up to the Eagles young and ascending secondary to take a step forward early in the season. The Eagles also need Jordan Hicks to return to form in a hurry as Nigel Bradham serves his one game suspension.
Eagles Offensive & Defensive Line vs Falcons Offensive & Defensive Line
The battles that will have the greatest influence on the game, especially for the Eagles, is along the trenches. The Eagles enter the season with their OL 100% healthy as Peters makes his return to left tackle. One thing the Eagles haven't had in their 2 matchups against the Falcons under Doug Pederson is OL continuity. Lane Johnson was suspended for the 2016 meeting and Jason Peters was on injured reserve for the playoff match up. The addition of Peters back into the line up is big for the Eagles as they are incorporating some new pieces into the offense while missing Jeffery. The Falcons have a young, fast, and aggressive DL that can cause problems for opposing offenses. Even without Peters, the Eagles finished as PFFs best offensive line in 2017 and will look to maintain their status as one of the best units in the league. Both tackles are more than capable of erasing the EDGE defenders the Falcons have to go along with an All-Pro caliber Guard in Brandon Brooks and All-Pro Center Jason Kelce. While Wisniewski doesn't share in the same accolades as his other linemen, he is a very reliable LG in his own right. Controlling the line of scrimmage and keeping Foles clean will make a big difference for the Eagles in this contest. On the flip-side, the Eagles moved on from Vinny Curry and Beau Allen this offseason but upgraded both spots with veterans Michael Bennett and Haloti Ngata. Both players serve as strong run defenders with greater potential as pass rushers than their predecessors. Chris Long, Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, and Derek Barnett all return to form the deepest and most disruptive defensive line in football. While the Falcons possess quality tackles, the amount of bodies the Eagles can throw at opposing offensive lines can be game changing. Alex Mack is an All-Pro Center but is surrounded by some question marks at guard. While the Eagles certainly lack some proven depth along the interior defensive line in the absence of Timmy Jernigan, there are still plenty of high quality rushers for the Falcons to contend with. Without Nigel Bradham and Jordan Hicks returning from IR, the defensive line needs to establish dominance for the Eagles to control this game.

2018.02.01 16:26 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Playoff Edition Super Bowl - New England Patriots (15-3) vs Philadelphia Eagles(15-3)

Philadelphia Eagles (15-3) vs. New England Patriots (15-3)
The Eagles proved the pundits wrong again as they handled the number two seed Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game. The Eagles offense put up 31 points on the NFL’s top rated defense as vintage Nick Foles came out to play throwing for 352 yards, 3 TDs and zero INTs in a dominate Eagles win at home in the Linc. The win sends the Eagles to the Super Bowl setting up a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX against the New England Patriots. While the Eagles took care the Vikings with relative ease, the Patriots had some trouble putting away a pesky Jacksonville squad. Blake Bortles put up 293 yards and a touchdown on the New England defense and led going into the fourth quarter. However, Tom Brady was Tom Brady and led his team down the field for a go ahead touchdown and the Patriots defense sealed the game with a defensive stand. The New England defense will have its hands full vs the Eagles who are much more talented on offense than the Jacksonville Jaguars, especially if Nick Foles played the way he did against Minnesota. The Eagles will look to get Jay Ajayi and former Patriot LaGarrette Blount going early against a porous New England run defense that is giving up the 2nd most yards per attempt in the league at 4.7. If the Eagles do get the run game going it will greatly help the Eagles in the passing game setting up the RPO and play action where Nick Foles can be deadly. Patriots corners Malcom Butler and Stephen Gilmore struggled to shut down the Jaguars’ WRs and will face a more skilled veteran Eagles WR corps. Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith seemed to get on the same page with backup Nick Foles against the Vikings as the two combined for 10 receptions for 154 and 3 TDs against a vaunted Vikings secondary. The two will look to carry that momentum into Sunday against the Patriots 30th ranked pass defense. On the other side of the ball, the Patriots offense has one of the all-time greats at the helm in Tom Brady who spreads the ball around to numerous play makers including speedy WR Brandin Cooks and All-Pro TE Rob Gronkowski, who is currently in concussion protocol, but is expected to play. The Eagles did well shutting down Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, but they did have Tom Brady throwing them the football, so the secondary will have to be on its game and not make any mistakes. One thing that could help them is the Philadelphia Eagle pass rush which has pressured the QB better than anyone in the league this year and has turned it up in the playoffs. The biggest key will be up the middle with Fletcher Cox, Timmy Jernigan and Beau Allen, if they can get a push and prevent Tom Brady from stepping up into the pocket it will take some of the heat off of the secondary. The Eagles don’t need to sack Tom Brady, but if they can hit and frustrate him like the Giants DLs did in Brady’s two Super Bowl losses they could force him into turnovers. Patriots’ coach Bill Belichick is one of the all-time greats will have his team prepared and any mistakes will be minimal, so the Eagles will need to take advantage of any that they can force. On the other side, Doug Pederson won’t shy away from the challenge of facing Belichick. He is going to play to win as evident by the end of second half of the Vikings game when he chose to go for points with just 29 second left instead of being satisfied with taking his 21-7 lead into halftime. The game will be a hard fought one at US Bank Stadium and you can bet the Eagles will continue to ride their underdog mentality against the Brady/Belichick dynasty. If the Eagles are going to go down, it will be fighting. Once again, virtually no pundits are picking the Eagles to win, but every dog has his day. Go Birds!

Eagles 35 - Patriots 28
As Jeffrey Lurie saw his team being taken away by a short little guy who is back with the kids where he belongs, he stepped into the Eagles locker room at Gillette Stadium and to rally his team for a win in Foxboro. The Eagles fell behind early before ripping off 5 straight touchdowns including a blocked punt return, interception return and punt return. The Eagles led 35-14, before Tom Brady woke and put two scores on the board to make it a one possession game, but a spike and three straight incomplete passes by Brady, sealed it for the Eagles as they ran out the clock.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video For the second week in a row, the number one seed was were underdogs going into a game on their own turf. After taking care the Falcons in the NFC Divisional Round, the Eagles welcomed the Minnesota Vikings to the Linc for the NFC Championship off their win over the Saints with the Minnesota Miracle. The Vikings took a quick lead scoring on their opening possession and forced a quick 3 and out. After that it was all Eagles. Chris Long hit Case Keenum's arm forcing an errant pass that Patrick Robinson took the other way for a 50 yard pick six. The Eagles defense forced 3 and out on the next possession as Nick Foles lead the Eagles 75 yards down the field against the league's number one defense before LaGarrett Blount barreled his way in the endzone for his 10th post season TD. The Eagles defense came up big in the second quarter as the Vikings were threatening to put points on the board before Derek Barnett sacked Case Keenum and forced a fumble recovered by Chris Long. Foles found Jeffery on the following drive for 53 yards and the TD. The Eagles would tack on 3 more points at the end of the half as they got the ball with just 29 seconds left and quickly moved down the field and set up a 53 yard Jake Elliott FG. Doug Pederson pulled out some razzle dazzle to open the second half as he called for a flea flicker which resulted in a 41 yard Torrey Smith TD. Foles would throw his 3rd TD pass of the game and 2nd to Alshon Jeffery to start the 4th quarter, in what ended up being 38 unanswered points, 31 by the offense against the league top defense. The Eagles defense would hold the Vikings scoreless after the opening possession and hold on to the win and send the Eagles to their third Super Bowl.
Patriots - Video – The Patriots were coming off a stomping of the Titans in the AFC Divisional round and welcomed the Jacksonville to town who were coming off a shootout win over the Steelers. The Patriots struck first blood with an early Goskowski 31 yard FG in the first quarter. In the second quarter however, the Jaguars woke up scoring touchdowns on consecutive possessions with the first coming in the form of an 11 yard Blake Bortles pass to Marcedes Lewis and the next on a Leonard Fournette run up the gut. The Patriots answered moving the ball down field with the help of a unnecessary roughness from an ugly helmet hit on All-Pro Rob Gronkowski which took him out of the game with a concussion and a very question pass interference penalty. James White ran the ball in with 55 seconds left to go in the half to make it a 4 point game. Jacksonville played it safe and opted to run out the clock rather than try to extend their lead with the 55 seconds left on the clock. Jacksonville would add two FGs in the second quarter, but Tom Brady would find Danny Amendola in the back of the endzone to start the fourth quarter to cut the lead to just 3. After a bad punt and good return by Amendola, Brady would play comeback hero once against in his career as he led his team down the field and took the lead with his second TD pass to Amendola on the night. The Patriots defense held the lead and shutdown Blake Bortles to second the Patriots to their 2nd straight Super Bowl and will send the Patriots to their 8th Super Bowl under Bill Belichick.

Stats to Know
Playing the Patriots' Slot Machine
The Patriots have a lot of weapons they deploy in the slot. Which personnel packages Eagles DC Jim Schwartz decides to go with will be key in this game. RBs Dion Lewis and James White line up in the slot 37% and 41% of their snaps, respectively. TE Rob Gronkowski lines up in the slot about 33% of his snaps, but about half of his yards come from the slot. From the slot, Gronk has the 2nd-highest receiving yards of all TEs (554), behind Travis Kelce. His Yards Per Route Run from slot alignment is also 2nd of all TEs. And he has ZERO drops from the slot (5 total). WR Danny Amendola is the primary slot aligner, accounting for 570/659 yards, 54/61 receptions and 515/666 (78%) of his snaps.

Matchups to Watch
Doug Pederson & Co. vs Bill Belichick & Co.
Eagles fans learned a lot about their team this season but perhaps the biggest take away is that COACHING MATTERS. If someone told us that a visor-wearing offensive guru that emphasizes practice and preparation would take the league by storm and quickly help make the Eagles contenders we would have believed it. We just would have thought that would have been Chip Kelly several years ago. Coaching has made the difference for the Eagles this season as Doug Pederson and company have navigated treacherous waters in route to this game. This Eagles team has been prepared for everything they have seen this season and now face their toughest test as the Patriots enter the Super Bowl with their own excellent coaching staff. There is no bigger match up in this game than right here. Pederson and his staff continue to put the Eagles in positions to win. Bill Belichick and his staff do the same thing. They are notorious for how well they team the game to their players and have them prepared. They are known for their continued adjustments and the ability to excel in situational football. They make you beat them. Given the talent and excellence in coaching, it’s no wonder they don’t lose often. Pederson isn’t Belichick but he has proven to be quite the coaching mastermind in his own right. They are always open to great ideas and always take feedback from their players. They are film junkies who constantly look for areas to exploit their opponent. They put their players in positions to succeed and they don’t settle for less than full effort. We’ve seen throughout the season the players rally around one another; this team has been everything Philadelphia fans love to root for and have the chance to celebrate the one thing they want more than anything. That’s a testament to great coaching. The Eagles will need one more great game plan and coaching effort in order to win this game as they will get the best of what New England has to offer.

2018.01.19 15:49 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Playoff Edition Championship Round - Minnesota (14-3) at Philadelphia Eagles(14-3)

Minnesota Vikings (14-3) at Philadelphia Eagles (14-3)
The Eagles proved the pundits and Vegas wrong as they pulled out a win against the Atlanta Falcons last Saturday despite being the first number one seed to be an underdog in their first game of the playoffs. The Eagles welcome the Minnesota Vikings to Lincoln Financial Field where they are again in the Underdog role as Vegas has them a +3. The team and the city embraced the moniker as Amazon as sold out of German Sheppard mask 2 separate times now since the masked were donned by Eagles DE Chris Long and RT Lane Johnson following the win against Atlanta. Overcoming the odds will be a little harder this week as the Vikings finished the season with the same record as the Eagles at 13-3 and boast one of, if not the best defense in the league this season. The Vikings have an impressive front seven which includes Linval Joseph, Everson Griffen, Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks, the unit is great at creating pressure and is second only to the Eagles in stopping the run. They also boast an impressive secondary that can play man to man and cover anyone in the league. Pederson and Reich will have their work cut out for them craft a game plan that will allow Nick Foles to succeed. I expect a lot of quick passes and leaning on the run game with some screens and the occasional shot to keep the Vikings off balance. On the other side of the ball, the Vikings have a backup of their own leading the offense in Case Keenum, however Keenum has been at the helm since week 3. Keenum has weapons on the outside in Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen to go along with big Kyle Rudolph at TE. The key for the Eagles will be getting pressure on Keenum which is where he struggled last week. The Eagles front seven has been great at putting pressure on the QB this season, so expect Graham, Cox, Curry, Long, Jernigan and Barnett to get after it. The game will be tough one, but the Eagles have played extremely well at home this season going 8-1 with the only loss coming to the Cowboys in a meaningless game where the starters were rested. The home crowd will try to push their team over the top to make it to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2004 season.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video The Eagles welcomed the Falcons in the the Linc where they have played well all season and continued that trend Saturday. The Eagles struggled early fumbling the ball 4 times in the first half and giving it away twice one of which was a short field of a muffled punt. The Eagles defense was able to hold the Falcons to just 10 points in the first half. The Eagles were able to come away with a TD and added a last second 53 yard FG to close out the half and bring the game with in a point. The Eagles added two more FGs in the second half, while the defense shutout the Falcons for the 15-10 win. The Falcons had a chance to win it at the end, but the Eagles defense held strong on the late goal line stand denying a Matt Ryan and Julio Jones 3 times. Following the game the Eagles embraced the underdog moniker as Chris Long and Lane Johnson donned dog masks.
Vikings - Video – The Vikings came out firing on all cylinders to start the game as they jumped out to a 17-0 lead in the first half and picked off Drew Brees twice. Brees and company were not going to go away quietly though as they fought back in the second half. Brees through 2 TD passes to Michael Thomas to bring that game within 3 before Forbath added a field goal to stretch the lead to 6. The games excitement level went through the roof at US Bank stadium. Alvin Kamara ran it in with 3 minutes left to give the Saints their first lead of the game. A minute and a half later Forbath kicked his third FG of the game for the Vikings to give them back the lead before just over a minute as Brees drove the Saints down the first and Lutz added a FG of his own to take the lead back. With just 25 seconds on the clock Sean Payton mocked the Viking faithful before Keenum completed a pass to Diggs to take them up to the 39 yard line before launching another pass to Diggs which he caught and spun away from the defender to go 61 yards for the game winning touchdown in dramatic fashion.

Stats to Know
Trench Warfare
Despite having a much higher average grade of starting Offensive Linemen, the Eagles' OL has allowed the same number of pressures as Minnesota's (154). The Vikings have allowed 12 fewer sacks, however. The Eagles' OL edged the Vikings' in terms of Pass Block Efficiency, which measures pressure allowed on a per-snap basis with weighting toward sacks allowed.
On the other side of the ball, Minnesota has an Interior Defender positionally in the top 10 (9th) in Run Stop %, Linval Joseph, while the Eagles have an Edge Defender positionally in the top 5 (4th) in Run Stop %, Vinny Curry. As far as Pass Rushers go, the Eagles have 2 Edge Defenders in the top 20 for Pass Rush Productivity--also a snap-weighted stat--in Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry, while Minnesota has 2 Edge Defenders in the top 20 for total pressures generated, Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter. On the Interior, Vikings cannot much the pressure generation of the Eagles, with Fletcher Cox leading the way and spreading the rest out just about evenly between Beau Allen and Timmy Jernigan. The Vikings also have even pressure generation between Tom Johnson and Linval Joseph, but the Eagles main DIs have generated about 30 more pressures in total, in the regular season.
Across the entire Defensive Lines, including all players, in the regular season the Vikings have generated 232 pressures to Philly's 306. Both Defensive Lines can get after it. --Courtesy of PFF Elite
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Offensive Line vs Vikings Defensive Front
The Vikings enter the NFCCG with the most talented defensive front the Eagles will face on the season. The Eagles defensive matchups will be discussed later on but this match up here is probably the most important match up for the Eagles to win this game. If you only took the word of Vikings fans, you’d walk away thinking everyone on the Vikings is literally Jesus and the Eagles don’t have a chance. We know that is not true since the Vikings do not have a Pro Bowl safety and that makes them fallible. Up the middle they feature the former but still quite literal giant Linval Joseph who finished the season as the 11th best Interior Defender per PFF and 10th best Defensive Tackle on NFL1000. Joseph is monster against the run and pretty solid as an interior rusher as well. His presence gives Zimmer the opportunity to send the blitzes he wants to send with regularity. Joseph is a strong finisher and can more than adequately handle himself on double teams. Next to him is Tom Johnson, who is PFFs 53rd rated interior defender and NFL1000s 15th. Johnson is a pretty reliable 3-tech that is good as a pass rusher and in the run game. The Vikings also have a great EDGE rushing duo in Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter. Griffen finished as the 10th best EDGE rusher on PFF, which is misleading given his score was an elite 90.1. He also finished as a 3rd best 4-3 DE per NFL1000. He is a game wrecker and is excellent as a pass rusher and run defender. Danielle Hunter obviously overcompensates for his girly name and openly carries his guns on Sunday’s. Per PFF Hunter ranks as the 32nd EDGE rusher and the 20th ranked 4-3 DE per NFL1000. They are as formidable a pair as the Eagles have faced all season on a line that is as talented as the Eagles as a whole. This doesn’t include Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks who will also look to party in the backfield Sunday as Mike Zimmer is not afraid to bring his patented Double-A Gap blitzes. Fortunately, the Eagles have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL even without Jason Peters. Lane Johnson and Jason Kelce are the best players at their respective positions in the league and 1st team All-Pros. Brandon Brooks is also deserving of All-Pro honors even though he wasn’t recognized as one. Stefan Wisniewski has been a very reliable left guard all season even with some bumps in pass protection. Big V has been up and down this season at LT but would start at tackle for a number of teams in the NFL. This is the premier match up in this game and could really help determine the winner. With Foles at QB, the Eagles coaches and OL must consistently execute the game plan well against a defensive line that has the ability to take over games. The Eagles will need to find a way to be balanced against this group while keeping Foles clean. It won’t be an easy battle for the Eagles and Vikings may get their share of wins, but if they play well enough they could help control the game. The trenches can make all the difference.
Eagles Defensive Line vs. Vikings Offensive Line
The reason why Mike Zimmer had eye problems the last few years was due to having to watch his offensive line. Gone are the days of human turnstile TJ Clemmings. The Vikings made a strong effort to reshape their OL this past offseason; in the process, they elevated their offenses level of play. Make no mistake; while the unit is improved it’s still vulnerable to good defensive lines. The Eagles have the best defensive line the Vikings will face this season. Rookie Pat Elflein has solidified the Center position for the Vikings and has had a solid year despite ranking 32nd on PFF among all Centers. Free agent acquisition Riley Reiff has been solid at Left Tackle finishing as the 14th best Left Tackle on NFL1000 and the 60th best tackle per PFF this season. Don’t let the wide variation in grades fool you, he is better than anything they’ve had of late and it has been a noticeable difference. Old man Joe Berger occupies one guard spot for the Vikings and has had a solid season for them finishing as PFFs 15th ranked guard. Berger has been equally good in run and pass protection. These three have helped steady a very bad offensive line but are they good enough to help hide the holes that have presented themselves of late? At the end of the regular season, starting guard Nick Easton landed on IR. The Vikings decided to shift Mike Remmers inside to fill his position while starting Rashod Hill at Right Tackle. Needless to say Hill has been a liability outside for the Vikings and will see a lot of Brandon Graham during the game. Hill struggled a lot with Cam Jordan last week and it doesn’t get easier this week. Fletcher Cox is fresh off a game wrecking performances and looking to attack the suspect Vikings interior line. The Eagles can bring the heat from all spots along the line and can do it with more regularity than almost every team in the NFL. The Vikings struggled for part of the game last week. They’ll likely struggle again this week in this department. How much is to be determined but the Eagles certainly need their defensive line to wreck the Vikings game plan in order to win. They’ll be an influence in this game it’s just a matter of how much.
Nick Foles vs. Vikings Pass Defense
The Eagles enter the game with one of the best rushing attacks in football thanks to good running backs and one of the toughest, well-executed run schemes in the league. Like the Eagles, the Vikings defense is excellent against the run. The Eagles will use the run game to help put the offense in more favorable situations and to keep the Vikings off balance but at some point Nick Foles is going to have to help the offense move the ball down the field. The Vikings defense is very talented in the secondary featuring a lesser Malcolm Jenkins in Harrison Smith, who is a candidate for DPOY. The Vikings use Smith everywhere and for everything. He finished as one of the best players in the NFL per PFF this season. Andrew Sendejo is in the concussion protocal but appears to be trending towards playing this week. Sendejo is the more traditional deep safety for the Vikings whose presence allows Harrision Smith to do his thing. The Vikings also feature one of the leagues most talented corners in Xavier Rhodes. Opposite him you’ll see 3rd year pro Trae Waynes. Rhodes is ranked as the 31st CB per PFF while Waynes is ranked 59th. These ranks can be a bit deceiving, especially for Rhodes. Waynes has become a good cornerback the last few years but is someone offenses would rather target than Xavier Rhodes. The Vikings also rotate Terrance Newman and Mackenzie Alexander into the game plan. The Eagles should be aware when either of these two are on the field and attack them with Nelson Agholor. Nelly has the speed and quickness to beat these two cornerbacks and make plays for the offense. Alshon Jeffery has had the time of his life against the Vikings considering he has done very well against them since 2013. The Vikings defense disguises a lot of their coverages and play smart football. They are very difficult to beat through the air especially when you factor in their pass rush. They are beatable when the rest of the pieces are put together on offense but it is going to have to take the Nick Foles the Eagles had in the second half of their first playoff game for the duration of this one. Otherwise, it could be a long day for the Eagles offense.
Eagles Defense vs. Vikings Weapons
This will be one of the more difficult matchups for the Eagles defense on the season when they take on the plethora of weapons and diverse offensive scheme the Vikings bring to the table. The Vikings enter with the 3rd ranked passing offense per DVOA on the season and it only makes sense when you look at the seasons Case Keenum, Stefon Diggs, and Adam Thielen have had. Both receivers are able to line up outside or in the slot and are excellent route runners with even better hands. It’s pretty amazing watching these two receivers go to work except for the fact the Eagles have to find a way to neutralize them this week. Diggs and Thielen finished 8th and 9th respectively per PFF among all WRs. Diggs finished as NFL1000 7th ranked outside receiver while Thielen finished as NFL1000 2nd ranked slot receiver in the NFL. Both are able to diagnose coverages, beat press man coverage, and find soft spots in zone defenses. Did I mention the hands? They’ll catch every Keenum YOLO ball when his ambitions are unable to match his arm talent. Speaking of Keenum where the heck did that come from? Say what you want about his future outlook but the season he has had is a testament to his ability to at least be good and the coaching staff’s ability to help him succeed. Keenum finished as PFFs 8th ranked QB and NFL1000 10th ranked QB for the 2017 season. He is able to diagnose coverage and find his receivers. He’s also built up a lot of chemistry with his receivers and trusts them to make plays with the football when he puts the ball in position. Keenum has been pretty good under pressure on the season, especially when outside the pocket. The Eagles will need to keep him in the pocket while rushing him hard and fast forcing him to make mistakes. We saw in the second half last week when he is under a lot of pressure he can make a lot of bonehead throws. He’s been fortunate on some to have talented receivers to make plays but has also done a good job putting passes in places that won’t hurt the team. The pass rush he’ll face Sunday is one of the best he’ll see. The Vikings will need to continue to beat man coverage given the emphasis the Eagles place on it. The Eagles need to be mindful of rub routes and all of the mesh routes/pick plays Shurmur likes to run to free open his receivers. The Eagles will be better served by mixing their coverages more often than normal. Confuse Keenum while forcing him into taking hits and making poor decisions. The Vikings still have the reliable tight end Kyle Rudolph. While he is down from the pace he set last year, he is also a reliable receiver and a popular red zone target for the Vikings. The Eagles need to be very wary of who is on the field and force the Vikings into 3rd and long situations. The the Vikings offense is nowhere near as effective on 3rd and long as they are in more favorable situations. Latavious Murray and Jerrick McKinnon are solid and complimentary backs but they aren’t the dynamic rusher that Dalvin Cook is. The Vikings offense took a solid hit when he went down. The Eagles will need to continue to dominate opposing rushing attacks while keeping the Vikings offense in worse looks to prevent them from winning their matchups more often. The receiving duo of Diggs and Thielen is probably the best starting pair the Eagles will face this season. The Eagles will more that earn that W if they manage these two.

2017.09.29 02:42 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 4 - Philadelphia Eagles(2-1) at Los Angeles Chargers(0-3)

Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) at Los Angeles Chargers (0-3)
One week after sending the Giants to an 0-3 start after a last second 61 yard field goal, the Eagles take to the road against the winless Los Angeles Chargers and aim to put a proverbial nail in the season of quarterback Philip Rivers and Co. The Chargers are 0-3, but should not be slept on with weapons on offense and a dangerous pass rush the game won't be easy. Rivers will look to bounce back from one of the worst performances of his career and it will be Jim Schwartz and the Eagles defense job to make sure that doesn't happen. On the other side of the ball, balance offensively and getting the run going early against a Chargers defense that is giving up nearly 150 yards on the ground could hold the key to victory and will help keep the dangerous Chargers pass rush honest. The Chargers and Eagles always play each other tough with 9-11 games being decided by 8 points of fewer and I don't expect anything different this week at the StubHub Center.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video – Rookie Jake Elliott kicked a 61-yard field goal as the clock expired to lift the Philadelphia Eagles to a 27-24 victory over the divisional rival New York Giants on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. The kick set and NFL rookie record for longest FG and was the longest FG in Eagles history as well. The Eagles were finally able to get the running game going as running backs Blount, Sproles, Clement and Sproles combined for 171 yards and two rushing TDs adding some balance to an offense that badly needing it. Elliott’s kick closed the door on a 4th quarter comeback effort by Eli Manning and Odell Beckham as the two hooked up twice for TDs and an injury ravaged Eagles defense that was missing its starting corner and strong safety for the game and lost starting defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and starting middle linebacker Jordan Hicks in the first half. The Eagles also lost versatile running back and return man Darren Sproles for the year as he tore his ACL and broke his arm on the same play.
Chargers - Video - The Chargers put themselves in a hole early with three first half interceptions and the Chargers were never able to recover as they fell to the Chiefs, 24-10. Melvin Gordon registered a TD for his third-straight game late in the first quarter, but it was the only time the offense would find the end zone for the rest of the afternoon. On defense, the Chargers were able to hold the high powered Chiefs’ offense in check for most the day, as Melvin Ingram recorded a career-high 3.0 sacks. And the Bolts were able to get home on Alex Smith five times, but it unfortunately wasn’t enough as L.A. fell to 0-3.

Matchups to Watch
Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram vs. Jason Peters and Lane Johnson
Everyone knows this will be the top match up to watch which makes me Captain Obvious. The Chargers have arguably the best edge rusher duo in the NFL in 2016 DROY Joey Bosa and the underrated Melvin Ingram. Bosa finished his rookie season with 12.5 sacks in 12 games while Ingram is off to a hot start with 5.5 sacks in the first 3 games. Last season, Bosa and Ingram finished as PFFs 4th and 9th best EDGE rushers, respectively. The Eagles have already given up a total of 11 sacks through 3 games this season, making this key matchup something to watch throughout the game. Enter Jason Peters and Lane Johnson, arguably the best Offensive Tackle pairing in football. Lane Johnson did not allow a sack, pressure, or hurry last week against the Giants while Peters largely shut down Olivier Vernon. This is easily the best offensive tackle pairing Bosa and Ingram have faced in the early season and may be the best grouping they'll go up against in 2017. Despite his age, and perception, Peters is still among the very best offensive tackles in the game with Lane Johnson not far behind him. Johnson is also the best right tackle in football. Together, they finished as the 8th (JP) and 9th (Lane) best tackles last season per PFF and are the 8th (JP) and 13th (Lane) best tackles per PFF so far on this young season. Both players excel in run and pass blocking. They will have their hands full on Sunday. If there is one thing consistent about the Chargers, it is Bosa and Ingram and they will bring the heat.
Eagles Run Game vs Chargers Run Defense
Doug Pederson vowed to get the running game going and the Eagles did just that against the Giants. They rushed for 193 yards on 39 carries, good for 4.9 YPC against the formerly stout run defense of the New York Giants. Doug was criticized all week for the lack of commitment to the run. There was a bit of truth to that, but it is easy to look at a box score rather than understanding what the offense was able to actually accomplish. There is no doubt that there needs to be some balance on offense, but it is built upon an efficient run game supplementing the passing attack. With that said, the way the Eagles were running and blocking this past Sunday, there was every reason to continue running the ball down the Giants throats. The Eagles run game will continue to rely on scheme and blocking execution in order succeed due to the lack of a dynamic feature back. The loss of Darren Sproles for the season complicates matters for the Eagles, especially in the passing game. There is an opportunity in this game to continue what they did against the Giants since the Chargers have the 31st ranked run defense in the NFL. Through 3 games the Chargers have allowed a dismal 4.7 YPC. In an effort to slow down the Chargers EDGE rushers, this should be part of the offensive game plan. The Eagles have a talented offensive line, even with the uncertainty at LG, should be able to take advantage of this Chargers weakness.
Eagles Receivers vs Chargers Secondary
It's worth singling out this match up as the Eagles may have some favorable looks vs this Chargers secondary. They were dealt a big blow when Jason Verrett went on season ending IR; Verrett is a highly-skilled CB for the Chargers who has the ability to be a premier CB in the NFL, but can never stay healthy. Opposite him is Casey Hayward, who was signed as a FA from the Green Bay Packers last off-season. 2016 was a career year for Hayward, as he was one of the league’s best CBs. Rookie Desmond King and second year player Trevor Williams have played well to start the year. Safety is a different story. The two Chargers starting safeties are Tre Boston and Jahleel Addae, rank 54th and 59 at Safety per PFF, respectively. There is an opportunity for the Eagles to attack the middle of this defense through the air with Torrey Smith, Alshon Jeffery, and Zach Ertz. It isn’t is a perfect matchup for the WRs, but there should be opportunities available to make big plays given the weakness up the middle on the Chargers defense.
Chargers Passing Attack vs Eagles Secondary
This will be another solid test for the Eagles secondary this week. Fortunately, the Eagles will have Rodney McLeod back in the lineup. I will be extremely thankful if we never have to see Chris Maragos play safety ever again. Based on the practice reports this week, expect the Eagles to be without Jaylen Watkins and Corey Graham again. Rasul Douglas has been a real bright spot for the defense since entering the game against Kansas City. The rookie 3rd round pick has made a number of plays demonstrating good tackling ability as well as excellent ball skills for a young player. His interception off a deep Eli Manning pass was textbook. Presently, he is PFFs 24th ranked corner. His ability to play the ball must have him drooling since Rivers has been known to be charitable of late. At the second CB position will be Jalen Mills, who was targeted 21 times (!!!!) last week vs the Giants. Mills is often targeted a bunch but he is a competitor who has done a better job of keeping the play in front of him. Our 3rd CB, Patrick Robinson, went from training camp nightmare to PFFs 5th rated CB on the season so far. At one point, Robinson was considered a fringe roster candidate. Shifting him to more of a slot role has worked wonders for the DB. They could possibly have their hands full this week as well. Keenan Allen is finally healthy and is a really good receiver. Tyrell Williams is a big bodied target. Travis Benjamin is a little inconsistent but has the speed to go deep. In addition to these guys, they have aging star Antonio Gates, who is still a beast in the red zone, as well as Hunter Henry. Henry is a really talented second year tight end the Chargers don't seem to use on a regular basis, but has the ability to haul in a lot of targets and TDs when they go to him. The Giants employed a lightning-quick passing attack against the Eagles that Schwartz seemed to expect. This was used to slow down the rush due to their own horrid OL. If Rivers is able to get his game on track, he has the ability to light up this secondary. Really depends on the game plan the Chargers employ.
Eagles Defensive Line vs Chargers Offensive Line
It's no secret the Eagles have a very formidable defensive line that has the ability to wreck opposing game plans. This week they will likely be without stud DT Fletcher Cox. While the Eagles do have depth at the position, no one can completely replace the ability Cox has inside. The Chargers are a team committed to running the ball despite not being good at it and have been decent in pass protection on the season. It'll be up to everyone else to hold it down while he is out of the lineup. Fortunately, the Eagles have Timmy Jernigan. And while Beau Allen is a good player in his own right, the drop off from Cox to Allen is steep. The Eagles must be able to keep the Chargers one dimensional and force Rivers into making mistakes.

2017.09.15 13:37 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 2 - Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-0)

Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) at. Kansas City Chiefs (1-0)
The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO, this Sunday for a battle between the mentor and the apprentice. Doug Pederson has been a QB, offensive quality control coordinator, QB coach and offensive coordinator under Andy Reid between his time with the Eagles and Chiefs, but this will be the first time he faces off against his former teacher. It will also be only the second time that the most winning coach in Eagles history faces off against his former team. Reid got the best of the Eagles last time in 26-16 win and his Chiefs are coming off a big win against the Patriots in Foxborough last Thursday. On the flip side, the Eagles are coming off a big win themselves as they threw a monkey off their back, beating a Redskins squad that had their number over the last few years.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles VideoCarson Wentz was 26-29 for 307 yards and two touchdowns as the second-year quarterback guided the Philadelphia Eagles to a 30-17 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday in a sloppy, mistake-filled season opener between the NFC East rivals. Wentz frustrated the Redskins defenders all day with his ability to avoid sacks and extend plays including a 56 TD pass to Nelson Agholor to put the Eagles on the board first. The Eagles struggled to run the ball throughout the game averaging just 2.4 yards per carry. However, the they were able to pull out a win with Wentz carrying the offense and an impressive performance by the defense where they caused 3 turnovers (2 FF, 1 INT) and 4 sacks. It wasn't pretty, but it was a hard fought division game that saw the Eagles come out on top.
Chiefs - Video - The Chiefs took on the defending Super Bowl Champions in week 1 and pulled off an impressive upset win over the defending champs. Rookie Kareem Hunt fumbled on his first NFL carry, but quickly forgot about it, as he scored three times and set an NFL mark Thursday night to open the NFL season. Hunt's 239 yards in his pro debut were a record since the 1970 merger. The Chiefs were just as good passing the football as Alex Smith was 28 for 35 for 368 yards with 4 TDs. He became the first quarterback with 300-plus yards, four TDs and no interceptions against coach Bill Belichick. The 42 points were the most the Patriots have allowed in Belichick's 17-plus seasons. The Chiefs defense held Brady in company in check most the night and Justin Houston looked healthy as he notched two sacks in the opener. The one down note on the night was the Chiefs lost All-Pro safety Eric Berry for the season with a torn Achilles tendon.

KC Week 1 Numbers That Matter

Of all RBs, Kareem Hunt had the highest elusive rating by a very wide margin. The Eagles must be sound in their tackling or they'll get gashed.
Player Atts Recs YACon/Att Rush Tks Avd Rec Tks Avd Elusive Rating
Kareem Hunt 17 5 4 7 1 145.5
Smith had 3rd highest average Time in Pocket, 4th highest Time to Throw, and highest Time to Sack. As a percentage of all dropbacks, Smith had 3rd highest at 2.6+ seconds. Looking at 2.6+ second dropbacks, he had the 3rd highest completion percentage and highest QB Rating. The Eagles' front four will have to get to Smith and get to him quickly. They did so last week against Washington, but if they can't this week, Smith could have a field day, especially since the Eagles secondary doesn't have anyone to match Tyreek Hill's speed.

When targeting Hill, Smith had the highest QB rating of all QBs to their WRs. Hill also had the 4th best Yards Per Route Run for receivers and only dropped one catchable ball. How the Eagles will contain Tyreek Hill is the question on everybody's minds.

Matchups to Watch
Eagles Receivers vs. Chiefs Secondary
The Eagles passing offense had been inept the previous two years due to personnel and scheme but already looks more improved this season from the new additions. The Chiefs secondary features two 2016 All-Pros in Marcus Peters and Eric Berry, the latter suffering a season ending Achilles injury in week 1. The rest of their secondary is are solid players as well. The Eagles have the personnel to be able to take advantage of Eric Berry's absence even with Marcus Peters playing in this game. Peters is a ball hawk, notching 14 INTs in his first two seasons. Wentz must be aware of his ability to make a play on the ball. However, even if Berry's replacement, Daniel Sorensen, plays well it will be difficult match the impact Berry makes out on the football field.. He is a true difference maker. The Eagles must be able to take advantage of this opening in the first game without Berry.
Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce vs. the Eagles defense
The Chiefs feature two premier, explosive play makers for Quarterback Alex Smith to throw to. Everyone knows Hill is one of the fastest players in the NFL. Without Ronald Darby the Eagles don't have any one that can adequately account for his speed outside. However, Hill isn't only a deep threat; Andy uses Hill to spread defenses out on crosses, motions, jet sweeps, and they even line him up in the backfield, similar how the Eagles used Desean Jackson while he was in Philadelphia. He is a difficult match up for the Eagles. Travis Kelce is a top 5 tight end in the NFL and is a massive target for Smith to get the ball to. While he doesn't have great hands, once he does get the ball, he is tough to tackle. Basically the anti-Ertz. The Eagles will likely mix and match assignments on Kelce. The Eagles did a great job shutting down Jordan Reed last week, not that this will be any easier.
Kareem Hunt vs. the Eagles front 7
One of the keys to beating the Redskins last week was to shut down their run game to keep their offense in check. That task doesn't change this week as the Chiefs have Kareem Hunt, who is the latest breakout rookie running back. Hunt is coming off a week 1 performance that saw him rack up 246 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns. Preventing Hunt from flexing his muscle will allow the Eagles defense to control the flow of the game and help them pressure Alex Smith, forcing him into poor decisions.
Kansas City Defensive Line vs. Philadelphia Eagles Offensive Line
Most fans are in agreement that the Eagles offensive line didn't have the cleanest game up front in the win against Washington. The offensive line is going to have to improve in order to help the offense play well in a difficult environment. The Chiefs feature two talented pass rushers off the edge in Dee Ford and Justin Houston. Houston had a 22 sack season in 2014 while Ford had 10 sacks last year in his breakout season. Houston has had to deal with his share of injuries that last two seasons but after his play last week, I think it is safe to say he is back to the form we expect from him. With Berry out for the season, these two players can make a huge difference for the Chiefs as they push forward without him. It's also worthy to note the last time the Eagles played the Chiefs in 2013 Justin Houston had 4.5 sacks. Lane Johnson was probably inspired to juice after that beat down. He's no longer a rookie, but it will still be a tough test for him. Controlling the Kansas City front in the run and passing game could make the difference between winning and losing.
Philadelphia Eagles Special Teams vs. Kansas City Chiefs Special Teams
The game also features two of the best special teams units in the NFL. Per Rick Gosselin, the Eagles and Chiefs fielded the 1st and 3rd place Special Teams units in 2016, respectively. It is no surprise given the emphasis both teams place on their units with the excellent coaches they have in place. There are a couple areas to watch in this game. The Chiefs ranked 1st in punt return average last season. This is no surprise given how good Tyreek Hill was. The Eagles ranked first in both kickoff starting point and opponent kick off starting point last season. The Eagles we consistently able start and limit their opponents starting field positions, which should be a huge factor in this game. Both teams are able to score on special teams which only adds to the excitement. Lastly, the Eagles just placed placekicker Caleb Sturgis on IR. Earlier this week, the Eagles signed rookie placekicker Jake Elliott off the Bengals practice squad. Elliott was a 5th round pick of the Bengals this past draft. Elliott did not miss a kick in college from inside 30 yards en route to breaking Stephen Gostkowski's school record for field goals. He has the ability to be a kicker full time in the NFL but this is a tough environment to walk into for a rookie in his first game. Hopefully he won't be a deciding factor.

Notable Moments
The Body Bag Game - Video - On October 21, the 3–2 Redskins beat the 2–3 Eagles 13–7, behind a rushing touchdown by Gerald Riggs and two Chip Lohmiller field goals. The rematch would come three weeks later, on Monday Night Football, with the second-place Redskins being 5–3 and the third-place Eagles being 4–4.Eagles defeated the Redskins, 28–14. Its nickname comes from the fact that nine Washington Redskins players left the game with injuries, and an Eagles player reacted to one of those injured Redskins by yelling, "Do you guys need any more body bags?" However, the Redskins beat the Eagles later that season in a divisional playoff game.
November 15th, 2010 - Video - In Week 10 of the 2010 NFL Season, then-Eagles quarterback Michael Vick put on a show for the ages throwing four touchdown passes and adding two more on the ground in what is one of the most dominant single-game performances in NFL History.
Forgotten Redskins-Eagles Game - On Dec. 7, 1941, the Redskins and Eagles played at D.C.’s Griffith Stadium in what has been called the most forgotten football game. The Redskins beat the Eagles, 20-14, in a meaningless game in terms of a postseason bid. But the day it was played is monumental in U.S. history. As President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed, Dec. 7, 1941 will “live in infamy." Around game time at 2 p.m. ET (8 a.m. PT), the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, the first time a foreign nation had attacked U.S. soil in nearly 130 years. Midway through the first quarter, the public address announcer began sending strange messages over the loud speaker, urging military officers, government officials and diplomats to leave the game and report to their offices in Washington. As the messages became more and more frequent, a curiosity grew among the 27,102 fans at Griffith and players from both teams.Everyone was wondering what was happening but could only guess because Redskins management, which had learned about the Japanese attack through a telegraph message, refused to make an official announcement despite the horror of the moment and the inevitability of America going to war. By the third quarter, almost every news photographer had left the stadium, as well as thousands of spectators, and the game ended in almost complete silence. When owner George Preston Marshall was asked to explain his decision for withholding the information, the Redskins’ entertainment-conscious owner said, “I didn’t want to divert the fans’ attention from the game.”

Matchups to Watch
The Redskins' new receivers vs. the Eagles' secondary
In recent seasons, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon have gashed the Eagles defense and have played big roles in the Redskins 5 game winning streak against the Eagles. Both have moved on elsewhere, so it will be interesting to see how Pryor, Crowder and Docton due against a revamped Eagles secondary. And how Cousins fairs losing not one, but two 1000 yard receivers from last season. The gap definitely looks closer in previous years with the additions of Darby, Robinson and Douglas for the Eagles.
The Eagles' new receivers vs. the Redskins' secondary
A flip from the match up above, the Eagles WRs were arguably one of the worst receiving corps in the league last season, while the Redskins boost one of the top corners in Josh Norman. The Eagles only return one WR from that squad in Agholor, while adding former Pro Bowl WR Alshon Jeffery and speedy veteran Torrey Smith. Jeffery is coming off a injury plagued season and Smith is coming off a couple down seasons in San Francisco. Both came to Philadelphia hoping to bounce back. Jeffery is sure to see a heavy dose of Josh Norman, so it will be curious to see how Breeland, who isn't the fastest corner can match up against Smith, who proved he still has wheels on a 50 yard TD catch from Wentz in week 3 of the preseason. Speed isn't the strength of the Redskin safeties slated to start either. It will be an interesting matchup to say the least and has definitely closed the gap
Redskins OL vs. the Eagles front seven
The front seven was definitely the strength of the Eagles defense last season with Cox, Bradham, Hicks and Graham, the additions of Long, Jernigan, Barnett and a healthy Curry should only make that group stronger even with the losses of Barwin and Logan. On the flip side, the Redskins boost Pro Bowlers at Guard(Brandon Scherff) and LT(Trent Williams) with the other 3 members of that line being no slouches either. This is going to be a hard fought battle in the trenches that will be fun to watch.
Ryan Kerrigan vs. Lane Johnson
Ryan Kerrigan has been a thorn in the side of the Eagles ever since he came into the league with 9 sacks and 5 forced fumbles against the Birds. This thorn was was a real pain last season as the Eagles played both games with Lane Johnson on suspension. Kerrigan had a field day against Halapoulivaati Vaitai in his season debut and Matt Tobin didn't fare much better in the second game.

General
Referee: Craig Wrolstad
At 5-8, the Eagles are still mathematically alive for a playoff spot. According to Football Power Index, they face 5-million-to-1 odds. The scenario: The Eagles must win out, the Falcons, Redskins, and Packers must lose out. The Vikings must beat the Packers, but lose their other 2 games. The Buccaneers must beat the Panthers in Week 17. The Saints must lose to the Cardinals or Buccaneers. And the Cardinals must lose at least once.
At 7-6, the Ravens stand a game behind the Steelers (8-5) in the AFC North. Baltimore, which beat Pittsburgh in Week 9, travels to Pittsburgh for a Christmas Day tilt and then finishes out regular season play with a New Year’s Day matchup in Cincinnati.
Last week, the Eagles allowed RB Chris Thompson to score a 25-yard touchdown run with 1:53 left to play. It gave the Redskins a 27–22 win at Philadelphia. That was by far the longest game-winning TD run inside the 2-minute warning of the fourth quarter in Redskins team history. The previous record was a 5-yard run by Larry Brown against the Giants in 1972.
Last week, WR DeSean Jackson caught an 80-yard touchdown pass from QB Kirk Cousins in the second quarter of Washington’s win. That was one yard short of the longest TD ever scored against the Eagles by one their former players, a mark set on an 81-yard pass from Cousins to Jackson in 2014. No other pair of active players has connected for two touchdown passes of 80 yards or longer against the same team. The gold standard in that regard was set by Joe Montana and John Taylor, who scored on pass plays of 96 and 92 yards against the Rams … in the same game! That was on Monday Night Football in 1989.
Last week, the Ravens allowed QB Tom Brady to score his 450th TD pass of his prestigious career – went for 79 yards to Chris Hogan to cap the scoring for New England.
The Ravens have never lost a home game to a rookie quarterback in John Harbaugh's tenure, and they've also won 12 of their last 13 regular-season home finales.
The Eagles are 1-6 on road with six losses in row.
The Eagles have never won a regular season game in Baltimore. In two games since the Ravens arrived in Baltimore, the Eagles tied the meeting in 1997 and lost the game in 2008.

Matchups to Watch
Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin vs. Ravens WR Mike Wallace
Just as the Redskins did a week ago, the Ravens will try to get their speed wide receiver matched up against the aging and struggling McKelvin. The veteran corner did make a big play when quarterback Kirk Cousins made a bad throw intended for DeSean Jackson and McKelvin intercepted and returned it for a touchdown. Earlier, however, he was burned for an 80-yard touchdown by Jackson.
Eagles RT Allen Barbre vs. Ravens LB Terrell Suggs
Barbre is bothered by hamstring injury and missed practice time this week, but is expected to play Sunday. He'll see a lot of the 34-year-old Suggs, the Ravens' top pass rusher, who leads his team with eight sacks despite playing with a torn bicep suffered in a 27-23 loss to the Giants. Barbre, a converted guard, has had problems with speed rushers in the past and Suggs can still get to the quarterback in a hurry.
Eagles DT Fletcher Cox vs. Ravens G Marshall Yanda
Another match-up where an injury could be a factor. Yanda, the Ravens' best offensive lineman, has a bad shoulder and missed last Monday night's 30-23 loss to the Patriots. Cox played well in last week's 27-22 loss to the Redskins and moved into the team lead in sacks, with 5.5. He's going to need another big effort this week if the Eagles have a chance to end their losing streak.
